Missing F-35: US military finds suspicious wreckage

The US military allegedly found the plane’s wreckage while searching for the missing F-35 fighter jet. Yesterday evening, Joint Base Charleston announced that it was stationed in Williamsburg County, in the US state of South Carolina.

The fighter jet had disappeared the previous day after the pilot extricated himself with the help of the ejection seat due to a “malfunction”. He was treated in hospital.

The Army then asked the public for help finding the F-35. This is the reason for the irony. According to various reports, the fighter jet currently costs between 80 and 100 million US dollars (75 to 94 million euros). The F-35 stealth aircraft of the American defense company Lockheed Martin is considered one of the most modern fighter aircraft in the world.

The plane missing, meanwhile, was an F-35B, a vertical take-off aircraft that flies shorter distances.

“The US Army is missing the F-35. “If you find one, it could be their plane.” “We knew the F-35 was stealth, but this is ridiculous,” South Carolina Republican Congresswoman Nancy Mace wrote on Twitter (X).
