Please tell George Winston that the photos are great, but the headline and the message of the article are flawed. He should stick to photography. ADS-B means Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast. It literally means that aircraft equipped with this system are broadcasting their position in the National Airspace to ground receivers. The F-35 has the equipment and is required to 'squawk' to enable safe separation from traffic. In the 'war' mode the aircraft obviously doesn't do this. Locating military aircraft in combat requires a skin paint that can only be done be some sort of radar. ADS-B receivers don't broadcast. I believe you need a technical editor to review articles.
