The fuel tanks of F-35 found defective

In the US, suspended operation of ten aircraft F-35.

As explained by experts, the US Air force were forced to temporarily suspend the operation of the F-10 35 fighters because they have identified a defect with fuel tanks. Despite the fact that previously the US military reported that the planes F-35 are of high quality, in taking them into service, it was found that the material used to manufacture the fuel tanks over time stratified, which may lead to emergency or same disaster.

Currently, the aircraft likely will be transferred to the manufacturer, however, the defect elimination will take, at least, 3-4 months, whereas previously operated planes had already been sent to the write-off.
