Today at a regular briefing, Defense Minister Iwaya said that a part of the fuselage of the lost F-35A had been found and recovered from the sea floor however the whereabouts of the rest of the fuselage and the pilot remains unknown. Parts of the flight recorder was found with cooperation with JAMSTEC's ship called "Kaimei". A part of the windshield was also found. Damage was heavy and part of the recording memory section couldn't be recovered.

From a lay perspective, there was probably a time when these and similar basic diagrams were classified in various ways.

Interestingly, Germany is still considering Super Hornets to replace Tornado. This decreases the likelihood of political considerations regarding the decision to drop the F-35.

Chinese and Russian stealth aircraft I guess. May as well be prepared before they appear in numbers.
