Over the holiday season, I was reading a new issue of Forbes magazine, and was uplifted by the headline of one of their articles: “2013 was the Year Everything Went Right for the F-35 Fighter.” This program seemed to have the ire of many elected officials (particularly from one senior U.S. Senator from our state!), but now that the program is reaching its flight testing goals, minimizing technical risks, and costs are being reduced, I hope and believe that the best is yet to come for the F-35 program. That is great news for Luke Air Force base, our country’s military, and hopefully, a certain Arizona U.S. Senator!
