Things looking up for F-35

Reuters reports that Lockheed Martin anticipates dozens of international orders or commitments for the F-35 in coming months, according to U.S. government officials and industry executives. The program got a boost Tuesday when South Korea rejected the Boeing F-15 and said it needed a fifth-generation fighter. Singapore may also announce an order for a dozen F-35s during the Singapore air show in February.
