F-35 jets still under flight ban


YUMA, Ariz. (KSWT News 13) - If you were hoping to see F-35's flying over Yuma skies anytime soon, you're going to have to wait a little longer.

Captain Staci Reidinger with Marine Air Corps Station Yuma tells KSWT News 13 all F-35 jets
in the country continue to be grounded after a flight ban last month.

A failure of a propulsion fueldraulic line in one of the F-35's in Florida triggered a nationwide flight ban.

And that's not the only thing grounding the F-35's at the military base in Yuma.

Captain Reidinger says they are also waiting on certification from the Federal Aviation Administration. She doesn't know how long it will take.
