F-35s at Luke Air Force Base will scream across the sky again on Wednesday.
Officials at the Glendale base announced Monday that they will lift the flight suspension that grounded its 55 F-35s since June 9 after five pilots complained of hypoxia-like symptoms over a five-week span. Symptoms ranged from dizziness to tingling in their extremities.

Investigators have not found the specific cause of the problems, but they have narrowed down the possible causes.[FULL ARTICLE]
