F-35, IT edition

The latest fun from the plane that just refuses to work is that the radar sometimes fails and needs to be rebooted.

There are rumours that Lockheed Martin is proposing to install a direct line to their tech support in all production F-35s.

"Your call has been placed in a priority sequence. If this is an emergency, please hang up and dial 911."

Boris said...

"911, what is your location and emergency please?"

The F-35 family includes three variants – all single-seat jets: the F-35A conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant, the F-35B short takeoff/vertical landing (STOVL) variant, and the F-35C carrier variant (CV).
The three F-35 variants have similar performance characteristics, and are mainly distinguished by their different basing requirements. As a result, the F-35B and F-35C variants have unique ways to take off and land.
