Navy Places High Priority on JSF

The Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Michael Mullen, wants to get the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter “out and online.” He told defense reporters Tuesday morning that the F-35, which will replace the F/A-18, is crucial to the Navy’s future force. Mullen said, “To me, it’s about the JSF… my concern is for the JSF program and delivering it on time.”
