Tom Jurkowsky, a spokesman for the Lockheed Martin Corporation, said that its new fighter jet had satisfactorily passed its test flight and
landed safely. The test was conducted in Texas.
Lockheed is developing three versions of the F-35 fighter jet.
The company's fighter jet program is being financed by eight foreign governments and the U.S. government to the tune of $276.5 billion U.S.
The F-35 Lightning 2 Joint Strike Fighter will be the most expensive purchase by the government/military.
