Senate appropriators keep JSF production levels flat
from Defense Tech
Just a quick F-35 update. The Senate Appropriations Committee recently voted to flatline F-35 Joint Strike Fighter production levels at 35 jets per year for the next two years. The original plan called for Lockheed Martin to ramp up to 42 jets per year by 2013. The Bethesda, Md., based-defense giant is in the midst of a $5 billion contract to build 32 jets this year.
