Flight operations of the F-35B short takeoff/vertical landing (Stovl) variant of the Joint Strike Fighter remained suspended this week as U.S. military and contractor engineering teams investigated the cause of an engine fueldraulic line failure in a test aircraft at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The fueldraulic line is part of the fuel-based hydraulic system that controls the actuators of the F-35B’s vectoring exhaust system. The grounding did not affect the F-35A and C models, respectively, the conventional takeoff and carrier variants.

The Naples Airport Authority reopened Runway 5/23 late last week after paving the safety areas at both ends of the airport’s primary runway. The runway was closed since July 25, but the project was completed a few days ahead of schedule and under budget, the authority said. The safety areas provide more room for aborted takeoffs and other emergencies and extends the runway’s declared takeoff distance from 5,000 to 5,800 feet.

Both pilots and two of four passengers were killed when the Learjet, operated by Global Exec Aviation, overran Runway 11 during a rejected takeoff at Columbia Metropolitan Airport in South Carolina. One key issue in the accident was tire pressure.
