On Monday the U.S. Air Force said it will resume local flying operations of Lockheed Martin Corp’s F-35 jets at Luke Air Force base in Arizona. The announcement comes after an 11-day suspension.
The Air Force said it will resume flight operations on Wednesday. They were stopped earlier in the month when five problems occurred during flights between May 2 and June 8. The Air Force described the problems as “physiological events.”
F-35 fighter jets made by Lockheed Martin were grounded at the Luke Air Force base in Arizona because of irregularities in pilots’ oxygen supplies. The irregularities caused them to suffer symptoms apparently related to oxygen deprivation.
An Air Force spokesperson said no root cause for the problems had been identified.
