It was confirmed that the Air Force F-35A fighter, which landed after colliding with an eagle in January of last year, was seriously damaged, unlike what was originally known, and is being considered for scrapping. The F-35A

stealth fighter , which took off from the Cheongju base on January 4 last year and collided with an eagle during flight, landed at the Seosan base due to malfunctions in avionics and landing gear. At the time, the Air Force announced that the damage to the fuselage was minor토토사이트, but the accident fighter has not been repaired as it is stored in the hangar at the Seosan Base until now. A government source told SBS , “As a result of a close examination, the front and rear fuselages, wing fuselage, airframe, and engine were severely distorted by the impact of the landing.” It is known that not only the engine but also major parts are damaged due to the distortion of the fuselage and airframe. The Air Force is receiving damage and repair-related data from Lockheed Martin, the manufacturer, and it is said that the cost of repairs reaches 110 billion won, the price of a fighter jet. Since it was an accident with no company responsibility or insurance, the entire repair cost is borne by the military. When considering the remaining life after repair, the practical benefit is not large, so the Air Force is reviewing ways to dispose of it or use it as an educational aid. More details will be delivered on SBS 8:00 News. (Photo = Provided by the Air Force, Yonhap News)
