Aero-News Quote of the Day
"It’s the purpose of the development program to
run these kinds of tests and find these problems."
Source: Dan Crowley, Lockheed's executive
vice-president for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program. A cracked
turbine blade in the Pratt & Whitney F135 turbofan destined for
installation in the second F-35 joint strike fighter test aircraft
has raised new concerns about the JSF program, though the
manufacturer maintains a fix is in the works. A similar problem was
uncovered during tests on the same engine last year; after that
failure, Pratt & Whitney went to work on redesigned turbine
blades, slated to come online this summer.
