In May, it became known that the installation of the latest TR-3 software on American F-35 fighter jets was two years behind schedule and would not begin until 2025.

“If F-35 fighter jets are significantly damaged by weather while waiting for a long-delayed software update on a Texas runway, American taxpayers could be left paying millions of dollars in repairs.”

Meteorologist Jennifer Dunn shared with reporters that summer storms in Fort Worth can be accompanied by hail and winds of up to 27 meters per second. If the aircraft are damaged, repairs can cost millions of dollars.
