Hello, Guest!

F35LaunchesMissileExecutive Mosaic continues to cover the F-35 from every angle, whether it is test flights, contracts for parts, news concerning the aircraft’s delivery to U.S. and international partners or executive moves in programs that govern the development of the joint strike fighter.
The company publishes stories on each of these developments in its portfolio of media properties which include ExecutiveBiz, GovCon Wire, The New New Internet and Executive Gov.
With more than five stories in the past month, ExecutiveBiz continues to cover business stories concerning contracts for crucial technical aspects of the aircraft.
The June contracts include vertical skins for the F-35’s tail awarded to Terma by BAE Systems and the first delivery of a center fuselage to Northrop Grumman from Elbit Systems.
GovCon Wire publishes stories on the latest appointments of executives responsible for the F-35 program, large contract awards to suppliers for parts and international sales news.
This past month there were a number of key executive moves concerning Lockheed Martin roles directly related to the joint strike fighter.
They included Jeff Babione being announced VP and deputy program manager for the F-35 and Lorraine Martin being promoted to lead the program for the Bethesda, Md.-based firm.  
The website also covered a $141 million contract Lockheed awarded to Finmeccanica subsidiary Alenia Aermacch to make wings and other parts for the aircraft and GovCon Wire published stories about the U.S. working on selling the F-35 to Australia and South Korea.
ExecutiveGov focuses on big picture news including how the F-35 fits into President Obama’s 2014 budget plan and DoD experts and officials predictions on the number of planes to be delivered in the coming years.
In the President’s budget plan for next year, the F-35 received $8.4 billion and articles published concerning predictions include quotes and opinions from the Lexington Institute’s Loren Thompson and Undersecretary of Defense Frank Kendall. 
The last website in Executive Mosaic’s media portfolio that covers important F-35 news is The New New Internet. 
The technology site covers deliveries of the jet to U.S. military bases for the test flights and  video of the test flights.
In a recent video on the website, a nearly two-minute video of a high-angle-of-attack test, which was conducted to evaluate the F-35′s ability to fly outside the positive and negative limits of control was featured.
In other recent test news, Jim Schofield earned the distinction of being the first pilot to perform an F-35 vertical landing for the U.K. military.
