Approaches to F-35 Depot-Level Maintenance: Insights from Other Systems
Edward G. Keating
Experience with earlier generation fighter aircraft suggests that DoD decisionmakers face a trade-off in F-35 depot-level maintenance. More maintenance on the aircraft would cost more in the near-term, but may result in a better-maintained aircraft that the DoD could operate further into the future.
