Wreck of Missing F-35 Jet Found in South Carolina

The F-35 has a range of so-called stealth modes that restrict its visibility. Yeah, they work.

During their search for a missing F-35, military officials have identified a debris field in South Carolina. The discovery took place in Williamsburg County, approximately two hours northeast of Joint Base Charleston (JB Charleston).

Working in close coordination with local authorities, personnel from JB Charleston and Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort successfully located the debris field.

Multiple teams, including JB Charleston, Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing from MCAS Cherry Point, Navy Region Southeast, the FAA, the Civil Air Patrol, and various local, county, and state law enforcement agencies across South Carolina, have collaborated in the efforts to find the U.S. Marine Corps F-35B.

While the recovery team operates in the area, the statement urges community members to stay away from the debris field. Safety precautions are vital during these operations.

Following the fighter's disappearance on Sunday, there have been mocking reactions and expressions of incredulity at the notion that the U.S. military could misplace such a sophisticated and expensive piece of military hardware.

One prominent question arises: How did the aircraft go missing without any tracking device? Critics have expressed confusion over why the public is being asked for assistance in finding and returning the jet.

GOP South Carolina Representative Nancy Mace presented this concern, stating, "How in the hell do you lose an F-35? How is there not a tracking device, and we’re asking the public to what, find a jet and turn it in?"
