JSF, F-35, and the “BATTLE OF THE X-PLANES”
Those of you from D/FW, parts of CA, and MD know that Lockheed is currently in production on the F-35 (which was previously known as the Joint Strike Fighter or JSF). Most of that production will be done right here in Fort Worth. I’ve talked about this before, but I’ve never gotten a look at the new high-tech super fighter before.
Well, now we can all get a look behind the scenes of the new fighter. PBS‘s Nova is planning to air a show that is more than 5 years in the making. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at the battle between Lockheed and Boeing to create the JSF. The program, called “BATTLE OF THE X-PLANES”, should air on or around February 4th between 4pm and 7pm.
Sounds like a pretty cool, behind the scenes documentary! Go-go TiVo!
