The US Air Force (USAF) has reportedly grounded 13 of its F-35 Lightning II joint strike fighter aircraft, following the discovery of peeling and crumbling insulation in avionics cooling lines inside the fuel tanks.



15 F-35As (13 USAF and 2 RNoAF) Grounded By “Several faulty cooling lines discovered in their wings”
Noteworthy, the issue does not involve all the CTOL (Conventional Take Off and Landing) examples but 13 U.S. Air Force and 2 Royal Norwegian Air Force F-35As. Interestingly, among the 4 aircraft already delivered to the Norwegians, only the third and fourth F-35 received at the Partner Training Center at Luke Air Force Base are affected by faulty components.
