F-35s grounded by Air Force

Posted: Updated:

As the controversy over whether to base the F-35 fighter jet in South Burlington continues, a new problem emerged for the jets Friday -- the Air Force grounded all F-35 flights nationwide.  

A routine inspection at Edwards Air Force Base in California found a crack on an engine blade. Manufacturer Pratt and Whitney is launching an investigation to find the cause. So all flights have been grounded as a precaution.
