US Air Force's F-35 flying without pilot: Best memes and jokes
The US military has initiated the search for a $80 million F-35 aircraft that continues to fly on autopilot, after pilot-ejection.
The US military has requested public cooperation in the search for an $80 million F-35 aircraft that continues to fly on autopilot after the pilot ejected mid-flight.
In a statement issued on Sunday, military officials based in Charleston, South Carolina said the F-35B Lightning II stealth fighter was "involved in a mishap" and the pilot was taken to the nearest medical centre and is “in a stable condition” now.
While the government and the military continue the search mission for the aircraft, people have taken to Twitter to share memes and jokes about the ongoing scenario.
Here are some of the best memes and jokes on #F35:
“Please help!! Missing F35 supposedly it might be flying on auto pilot. If found please do not scrap it for meth,” wrote a humourous user.
Another meme showed a milk carton with a photograph of the aircraft captioning, “MISSING HAVE YOU SEEN ME?”
“If found, contact United States Air Force.”
Former British military officer, Frank Ledwidge explained “Depending on how much fuel was in the aircraft, the F-35 jet could likely travel hundreds of miles without its pilot,” in an interview with Newsweek.
A user was astonished by the military's loss of an F35.
“What the hell Mr.President how did your woke military lose an F35?” they wrote.
While another user humorously attached a meme where they turned on the ‘Find My’ option in their iPhone to Find My F-35.
Another user came up with a highly interesting theory writing, "Hear me out, folks:
What if that missing #F35 went through a time warp and is out there fighting the Japanese that are about to attack Pearl Harbor?"
Joint Base Charleston posted a Tweet sharing, "Based on the jet's last known position their search is focused on north of JB Charleston, around Lake Moultrie and Lake Marion.
