Will the Blue Angels be flying Joint Strike Fighters next time we see them?

Lockheed Martin

Well it's unlikely that will occur by the next time we see them, 2013, but apparently there are discussions that the Blue Angels will hang up their F-18s for the F-35s.

Check out The Island Packet for its writeup on that possibility.

And while we're talking F35, there are several reports out there that a House committee is looking to reinstate funding for an alternative engine for the F35 program.

Seems this secondary engine just won't die as it was just last week that Congress informed GE it would stop funding the alternative engine.

Well it's back.

We'll send you over to The Associated Press for coverage of this attempt to revive the secondary engine.
