The most expensive F35, worth $ 100 million (90 million euros), crashed into the sea last Monday when it crashed into a US military aircraft carrier. The plane collided with the edge of the ship and fell into the water.
Seven Marines were injured in the crash and the pilot escaped with the exhaust seat. He also sustained minor injuries in the incident.
Writes that the F35 fighter is the most advanced in the world News Channel ABC News. In addition, there will be a lot of confidential information in the cockpit. The Americans did not want it to fall into the hands of the Chinese.
“Retired Marine and ABC analyst Steve Conyard says the race is now on for the quickest removal of debris from the seabed.”
Conyard says the Chinese may have an idea of where the fighter jet is. “Both countries want to get their hands on this catastrophe.”
This is the second time in a short time that an F35 aircraft has crashed into water. Last November, a British military incident occurred when an aircraft carrier capsized in the Mediterranean. Then the Americans helped to recover the rubble.
