    Missing: $80MM Fighter Jet; does not respond to commands, likely frightened

    Anyone find a wayward F-35 today? The Marine Corps may want to talk to you as they don't know where it is either and have "asked the public for help".

    It went down in SC somewhere? If so, the fuselage has already been turned into a barbecue pit.

    Pilot could have had an accomplice... Disable the beacon.. Pilot bails with a story of plane being unresponsive.. Leaving the accomplice to fly to some remote location to stash the 80 million dollar score.

    The magats (not maggots) have surely stripped it for souvenirs since it was paid for with their tax dollars, and then they took a crap where the pilots chair used to be.

    When he finds the person who stole it he's going to let them have a smoke in the back of the SUV while he prays for them before turning them in.

    Maybe the transponder had the same issue as the PIEPS beacons and turned itself off? I wonder if you can warranty an F35 from Lockheed Martin?
