Norway says F-35 jet on track; keeping eye on costs
Norway is one of eight countries that helped the United States develop the new radar-evading warplane. Norway has ordered 16 of the 52 jets it plans to buy in coming years, with the first jets to be delivered in 2017, a year earlier than planned.
The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter is the Pentagon's costliest arms program. The U.S. military plans buy 2,443 jets for the U.S. Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy over coming decades.
