This article lacks balance. The piece only describes issues that the jet has encountered while entering service. The grounding lasted only as long as inspections were conducted to determine serviceability of the offending part. As of this writing, most of the jets are back in service. Every aircraft has teething issues, especially early in it's life cycle. Arguably the best USN interceptor of all time, the F-14 Tomcat crashed on it's maiden flight. This jet went on to be a world beater. Please add some balance to your pieces.
