Joint Strike Fighter skips TucsonPosted: Updated:
The military's next generation of fighter jets won't be landing in Tucson, for now.
Pentagon officials picked Luke Air Force base in Glendale as the preferred training location for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. They could get up to three 24-jet squadrons. Three other states are in the running.
Tucson International Airport could be selected as a training site if the Air Force later expands the F-35 program.
