F-35 will make its international debut in Farnborough Air show despite fleet suspension on Monday.
F-35 fighter jets remained suspended on Wednesday as Air Force officials investigated a fire that damaged one of the jets.
"We will resume flying once we know more about the cause of the F-35A fire that occurred at Eglin AFB earlier this week," Ulsh said to Reuters. "At present, there are no changes to our plans to debut the aircraft in the UK."
The Air Force had planned to resume flights of the A-model jets at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida on Wednesday, but announced earlier that it would continue the flight ban "in the interest of safety," said first Lieutenant Hope Cronin, a spokeswoman for the Air Force 33rd Fighter Wing.
