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.
