GAO Report on the Growing Financial Crisis of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program

GAO Report on the Growing Financial Crisis of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program

Testimony on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter delivered by the US Government Accountability Office to the Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces Committee on Armed Services, House of Representatives. The verdict: with the F-35 being manufactured before it is completely designed or tested, the wildly expensive jet will continue consuming hundred of billions of taxpayer dollars. Besides its staggering price tag the F-35 is exceptional in the amount of software being written for it—10 million lines of code and growing.
