Britain's new F-35s arrive in UK as US.gov auditor sounds reliability warning klaxon

The Lightnings, as the F-35B will be known in British service, were accompanied on their flight by three RAF Airbus A330 tankers – one at the US end, with two more near the eastern North Atlantic – and an A400M Atlas transport aeroplane providing air-sea rescue cover.

An all-Airbus support team to get the planes over the pond - not the best PR for a USA-ian company like Lockheed Martin.
