Lockheed Martin today bravely faced a packed briefing room fully of reporters inside their chalet at the Singapore Airshow. I will give Lockheed VP Steve O’Bryan credit for taking our onslaught of skepticism. It would have been easier to cancel the event given the F-35 program’s leadership and development turmoil that started on Monday. There is no other way to say it: A gap is growing between the facts we know and the statements we hear from Lockheed’s representatives. The video above provides a glimpse of the exasperation — presumably felt on both sides — as the press conference went along.
