      Apparently the Marines have lost one and is asking the public for help. With all the sophisticated tech on the world most lethal fighter, how the hell do you lose one? I blame Biden.

      Truly unbelievable.

      Billions of dollars of technology and it can’t send a find my iPhone signal?

      Maybe that’s too flippant:  but a Cessna carries a little inertia operated beacon that activates in case of a sudden stop. Seems like a multi hundred million dollar fighter could as well (and I say that knowing that radio emissions from a stealth fighter are a very very bad thing in general).

      last flippant comment:  I bet the Chinese know where it is.

      It’s even worse. It could still be in the air. Headed to China?

      “The jet was left in autopilot mode so there’s a possibility it could still be airborne somewhere over South Carolina, a spokesman at Joint Base Charleston told NBC News.”

      Might be a chance this thing was actually flown someplace to hide it and steal tech.

       

      correction. It has been found. Two hours outside of Charleston.

      As bad as that is, there are six American nuclear weapons that have been lost and never recovered…
