  • Various shots taken in September 2010 feature the engine for the aircraft, and various shots of the panels, which allow ease of access to repair the aircraft.
  • The test laptop, which is the testers variant of the laptop to be used by maintainers in the field, is featured as well.
  • And SLD’s Robbin Laird is seen talking with Lockheed employees involved with the F-35B.

Ease of access and parts consolidation allow easier and more rapid maintenance of the aircraft compared to legacy aircraft.
