American F-35 began to rust, not having reached the place of basing


American fighters F-35 rusted, not getting to their bases.

According to the American media, the Pentagon was forced to suspend the delivery of F-35 fighter jets due to the fact that during maintenance, strong corrosion was found at the attachment points of some units, while the aircraft manufacturer claims that the problem is insignificant, then the Pentagon representatives announced the danger of further use of these aircraft.

According to preliminary data, corrosion was detected on 72 aircraft, while still about 150 aircraft to be inspected for possible damage to the metal.

Experts do not exclude that the main reason for the manifestation of this problem was the non-observance of the technical conditions of production, and the replacement of some materials with others, obviously not suitable for this.
