Icon for the Joint Strike Fighter Program THE COVER: The two aircraft shown are artists' renderings for the Joint Strike Fighter Program. These aircraft are the Boeing and Lockheed Martin Corporations' designs chosen from a set of three configurations for advancing into prototype development. Each will be developed into three versions intended to meet the requirements of the U.S. Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps. The Marine Corps version will also be procured by the United Kingdom Royal Navy. Cost will be a major driver, and commonality of 80% of the aircraft for the three versions is a goal. The challenge of producing the three versions for land-based, carrier-based, and advanced short-take-off and landing operations is unparalleled in the history of aviation. The technological advancements from this program are expected to be significant over the coming years. (Cover design by Kenneth R. Moscati.)
