    Let me understand what is being offered here. If the press wants an unrestricted view of F-35 engines and cockpits, then they need to back off. As a 33-year member (retired) of the 158th Fighter Wing, I fully understand why restrictions are necessary. This is a highly classified weapon system. Not everything needs to be revealed. Enjoy living in this country. The VTANG is part of a Defense Department that protects everyone. Even those who are clueless.
