The Pentagon's F-35 program, run by military contractor Lockheed Martin, has cost taxpayers a total of $1.7 trillion. According to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) report, $1.3 trillion of that total has been spent on maintaining and operating the fighter jets. The report notes that the contractor-led approach to maintaining F-35s has caused major delays. One example cited in the report details how military maintenance staff are unable to look up part numbers because the F-35's database is controlled by Lockheed. Not having ready access to part numbers hinders the repair of the aircraft because it delays the ordering and receipt of needed parts, Diana Maurer, Government Accountability Office, via NBC . According to the report, over 10,000 F-35 components are still in need of repair. NBC reports that the GAO report was ordered by Congress as part of last year's defense bill.
