A progress report on the f-35, plus controversy surrounding a ballot question about the fighter jet.
Vermonters will get to see and hear an f-35 fighter jet some time this year.
The guard says it’s bringing at least one or two here for training purposes and to show
its members the plane that will arrive full-time in 18 months.
We’re told the media will also get a look at the plane, so we’ll see just how loud it is.
It’s not clear when that demo will happen yet, but some time in 2018.
Construction continues at the guard to get ready for the 18 fighter jets that will be based
at the Burlington airport, a decision that has sparked nearly a decade of debate.
