Serious country, by the way.
Greatest military ever, run by very adult-like individuals.
Military officials are working in coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration after an F-35 went missing following a “mishap” near North Charleston on Sunday, September 17.
“Based on the jet’s last-known position and in coordination with the FAA, we are focusing our attention north of JB Charleston, around Lake Moultrie and Lake Marion,” Joint Base Charleston said via X, formerly known as Twitter.
We’re working with @MCASBeaufortSC to locate an F-35 that was involved in a mishap this afternoon. The pilot ejected safely. If you have any information that may help our recovery teams locate the F-35, please call the Base Defense Operations Center at 843-963-3600.

Isn’t there like… a tracking device on the aircraft?
But it is a stealth jet so… you know, maybe this really proves that this feature is very good?
I haven’t seen statistics, but these events seem to be happening more and more often.
I assume part of that is simply that they are doing more training as they prepare to escalate wars all over the world. But it seems to be somewhat out of control.
Again: how do you lose it?
