US transfers Turkey's F-35 jet to Arizona base
WASHINGTON- Anadolu Agency
Spokesperson Eric Pahon told Anadolu Agency "another one will be sent tomorrow."
He reiterated the U.S. concerns about Turkey's procurement of Russian S-400 surface to air missile system.
On the training of Turkish pilots in the Arizona base, Pahon said there has yet to be any change and "training will continue.”
The U.S. would have delivered four of the jets to Turkey with the latest transfer.
Turkey joined the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program in 2002 and has invested more than $1.25 billion. It also manufactures various aircraft parts for all F-35 variants and customers.
