RAF increases F-35 risk rating

via IHS Janes.
The United Kingdom has increased its risk rating of the Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter because of delays in delivering representative simulators to the Royal Air Force (RAF).

Details of the issues with the United Kingdom’s F-35 simulators were revealed in a supplementary memorandum to the March 2017 Delivery Carrier Strike study, which was released by the UK Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee on 9 October.

The memorandum said the “the Senior Responsible Owner (SRO) for the UK’s Lightning II programme revised his programme delivery confidence, reflecting compression in the schedule, from amber to amber/red in June 2017.
Risk.  You can't talk F-35 without talking about two things.  Risk and Cost.
