Missing Japanese F-35 poses major security headache for US if it falls into Russian or Chinese hands

The Japanese F-35 fighter jet missing in the Pacific could be a major security headache for the U.S. if Russia or China locate the state-of-the-art fighter jet first, experts warn.

Japanese defense officials say a search is underway for the fighter jet after it disappeared from radar during a flight exercise in northern Japan. The plane’s pilot is also missing.

Bristling with sophisticated technology and weaponry, the F-35 is the result of the most expensive weapons program in America’s military history, valued at $406.1 billion.....

1. Put the entire Pacific Theater on lockdown.

My company spent 10 days on lock down, in the field, because someone lost a set of PVS 7s... That sucked so bad. Lined up doing a FOD walk across miles of scrub land on Ft Hood's West Range, all day every day, and back to 2 man pups at night. No hot chow, just MRE's. They even confiscated our pogie bait

Worst part? It was a damn E6 admin POG in 5th platoon, who had absolutely no need to even be issued NVGs.
