F-35 now has a parts problem to go with the development woes.

Spare parts for Lockheed Martin Corp's stealthy F-35 fighter jets are not keeping up with demand according to a report out on Thursday from the U.S. Government Accountability Office.

The report said "from January through August 7, 2017, F-35 aircraft were unable to fly about 22 percent of the time due to parts shortages."

This whole program is trash.  They have a limited number of aircraft in service now and they're having problems with parts?  Just plain wow.
