The Pentagon needs your help in locating a missing stealth fighter jet. They say an F-35 went missing somewhere over North Charleston, South Carolina. That’s where the pilot ejected. He landed safely in someone’s backyard.
Now here’s where it gets weird. They say autopilot function was activated before the pilot punched out. Also, the transponder mechanism was disabled.
Lockheed Martin describes the F-35 series on its website as the “most advanced fighter jet in the world,” as well as the “most lethal, stealthy and survivable aircraft,” NBC News reported.
The military says the jet was left in a “zombie state.”
“The aircraft is stealth, so it has different coatings and different designs that make it more difficult than a normal aircraft to detect,” Joint Base Charleston spokesman Jeremy Huggins told the Washington Post. “The aircraft is stealth, so it has different coatings and different designs that make it more difficult than a normal aircraft to detect.”
At least that’s the story they’re spinning to the national media.
“How in the hell do you lose an F-35,” Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) she wrote on Twitter. “How is there not a tracking device and we’re asking the public to what, find a jet and turn it in?”
And why would a pilot eject from a plane that was operational? And what exactly is the public supposed to do if they find the jet – hook it up to a Ford F-150 and tow it back to the military base?
A $100 million fighter jet disappeared in a zombie state. A perfect metaphor for the Biden Administration.
