Pentagon: Cost to fix F-35 engine issue 'relatively minor'
Pentagon chief arms buyer Frank Kendall said the United States was close to a design fix for the Pratt & Whitney engine that powers Lockheed Martin's F-35 fighter jet after a major engine failure in June, and the cost would be "relatively minor." Kendall told reporters after a defense conference that the Pentagon was setting up test fixtures to ensure that the corrective action proposed by engine maker Pratt, a unit of United Technologies was acceptable and adequate.
