Volume 176 Number 24

With the Farnborough air show set for this week, the successes and failures of the F-35 fighter program were Topic No. 1 for many of those planning to attend, especially in the U.K., where the short-takeoff-and-vertical-landing variant missed what would have been two high-profile appearances before the show (see pages 44 and 96). On the cover, a flight deck crew secures an F-35B Lightning II on the assault ship USS Wasp. U.S. Navy photo.
