The F-35 Lightning Fighter Jet Gets Assigned To Base In Florida

Apr 4, 2009 | Posted by: elkc | Full story: www.wittmannnews.com

The Air Force is going ahead with plans to locate the joint F-35 Lightning II school house at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla...

While the school was expected to be at Eglin, the Air Force did not make the selection official until late Friday. The decision was stalled because of protests from some communities near Eglin where noise levels from the F-35 were projected to reach up to 90 decibels.

Maj. Gen. Charles Davis, who oversees the Joint Strike Fighter Program Office and will become Eglinís senior officer in April, and claims that ongoing noise measurements of F-35s should show the jets are not as loud as earlier evaluations found. Davis conceded the jets are louder than the F-15 Eagles theyíll replace at Eglinís 33rd Fighter Wing.

The news of the F-35 being assigned in of all places Florida...A state in the union filled with more electoral votes than Arizona... Is not the news the Maricopa County Supervisors wanted to hear after causing a contention from landowners who saw their property values sink like a Chevrolet in to a lake...just like a rock! This may open some old wounds not yet fully healed toward the county supervisors who tossed Maricopa County landowners to the wolves in order to squeeze more juice out of Luke's lemon trees.

In an article that will appear in tomorrow's Sunday edition of the Daily Oklahoman a surprise announcement will appear...but on February 13th, 2009 Wittmann News was already discussing the possibilities...

A quote from that forum can be found along with an in depth report concerning Luke loosing the assignment to the Florida A.F.B. at...

"Luke development ruling improves F-35 chances"

Well! I can't for the life of me tell you why so many of the people in the Wittmann area still stick up for that fucking Air Force Base called Luke Field. It is " Luke Air Force Base " that is bringing you all down, what!! the hell is so hard for you to understand about that?
I can! tell you that all your bitching and whining to the County and State, about your property rights is like blowing smoke up a monkeys ass, it does you no good at all but it gives the monkey a good laugh.

You people who wish to retain your right to do with your property as you wish ( within reason ) MUST!! forget about trying to deal with the assholes in the County and State Government, they DO NOT!!! care about you or your rights.
If you are going to be heard, you MUST! take your bitch straight to the source, the " United States Air Force " after all, they! are the root cause of your current problems.
Now then, it's a fact that the United States Government does not like disgruntled Citizens/Taxpayers writing harassing letters, bitching and complaining about one of it's Military installations. After all, Luke Field was built with hard earned Tax payer dollars, Tax payers have every right to bitch and complain about a facility they paid for, when that very facility becomes a " DETRIMENT " instead of an "ENHANCEMENT " to their well being. Besides I donít like the fucking noise.

If enough people write enough letters of complaint, to the Air Force, suggesting they might want to consider relocating this white elephant, or better yet just getting rid of it altogether. You might want to suggest in your letters that the Air Force send the F35s down to Davis Monthan base in Tucson, or send them down to Yuma, or better yet give the fucking things to Nelleis field in Nevada, or even better yet, just shove the fucking things up their Military Ass, the F35s are already making too damn much trouble and theyíre not even built yet.

Believe me your local Governments see absolutely nothing in this Air Force base except ( revenue ) Dollars, Cash, Greenbacks, Mula and even a few Pesoís, to grease their own fat sweaty palms. The fat alcoholic fagots and douche bags in Phoenix, and the one horse towns in the outlying areas couldnít give a shit less whether or not this Air Force Base has any actual Military value to it, itís all about the money and itís your! Money.

So then its up to you, either pitch a loud enough bitch so that you are heard, or wipe the tears from your eyes, pack up your things, say goodbye to your loved ones and move on.

PS: Maybe Iíll just send this post to the Air Force on your behalf, please let me know what you think, thank you!! J. W. Simms.

Well now!! it seems to me that the people just may have pitched a pretty loud bitch after all. Now if we bitch a little louder, maybe the Government will move Luke field down to the everglades, in a pool of quicksand would be nice. J. W. Simms.

Interesting how hard Surprise fought to stop horns from the train but they fought tooth and nail to allow and zone the area approx 1300ft from the Nadaburg School so that BNSF could build a distribution center for the trains with all of the noise, exhaust and danger. It seems that the city officials are very concerned about their own voters but not concerned at all about folks that they make decisions for without any vote. Shame on you.

Drove by yesterday and the construction seems to have slowed dramatically. Would be surprised if opened by the end of July. Hope nothing has stopped the building. We could use the store and the gas availability.

Stopped in the Subway, the one manager is a dick to his employees. I almost felt like climbing across the counter and kicking his ass for the way he was treating them. I hope they can his ass. He was bitching about the one girl and how she was cutting the bread, said he needed to send her to "bread cutting school". He needs to go to "courtesy school" so he can stop being a dick head! I hope he reads this! If he goes off on the employees again I will not keep quiet. I'll embarrass him the way he did his employees.

The owner said before they built it that the price of gas would be the same as in town. Ten cents higher isn't the same as in town unless you're dyslexic.

ď American made F-35 jets defectiveĒ

"The US Defense Department reports on the deficiencies and technical shortcomings of the US-made F-35 warplanes, some makes of which are on Israeli shopping list.

The report, compiled by Pentagon's Operational Test and Evaluation Directorate, pointed to problems with the F-35 Lightning II's handling and avionics among other things, reported the US-based newsweekly Defense News on Monday.

The dissatisfaction has prompted Lockheed Martin, the American manufacturer to recurrently delay testing of the aircraft - which are also known as Joint Strike Fighter, said the Israeli media network Arutz Sheva's website said on Saturday.

The United States has promised Israel 20 of the warplanes and promised to veto any anti-Israeli resolution at the United Nations Security Council in exchange for Tel Aviv's extending a partial moratorium on its settlement activities on the occupied Palestinian lands.

Tel Aviv, however, has rejected the offer pushing into a gridlock talks with the Palestinian Authority, which had resumed in early September.

ďJust crash all that American made junk into that fucking Luke Air Force Base and be done with it, I donít want those fucked up recycled beer canís flying over my house. While were at it, letís give those fucking Jewís, General Motors and Ford Motor Company also, as a matter of fact we should just use that fucking Israel as a dump for all American made products, the Jew bastards donít deserve anything better.
