I am sure there is some more grey area to that. I was told countless times to not be taking pictures of what was on the flight line just for kicks and that is what I was getting at. We had visits from the F-22 and the V-22 in their infant stages at miramar and we were all reminded that taking pictures was a no no and could be subject to the UCMJ if need be.
But yes there was people on base that were allowed to take them sure, but it is not a base wide thing.

I used to have hundreds of pictures that I took out on a ramp, of every type of aircraft. You can't just take pictures of the planes on the ramp, and some of them there are times when you can't take pictures of them because of classified antennas that are sticking out, as well as certain angles you can't take pictures of.

I haven't been involved with it at all. I follow it very closely, and I know people that have been involved in some way shape or form in testing, as well as other areas involved in future F-35 uses.

As do/did I. And I bet they were not all on the up and up is the point I am making.
Yes it was stupid for the guy to take his phone out and try and take a picture of the plane as a civi with an escort.
Just found the reaction and what was said funny, tho true, cause the real problem with people taking pictures they don't want being taken lies within the base.

Oh all of mine were on the up and up. It's good to have a father who is the Senior Enlisted Adviser for a unit, as well as being so respected that people in Washington would ask if he was going to be out there when they land.

And yes, it was incredibly stupid of him to whip his phone out and try to take a picture in this case.

Yes. they tell you not to do that. They also tell you not to tell people about what u saw. They told me I could not use binoculars. I was instructed to forget things. We got loose security in this country.( USA) I guress they have more secret stuff than the F35

Oh there's a lot of stuff out there that we'll never see. Some of it has been flying since the 1980s and is still secret.

True that. I saw a fighter jet maneuver more Gs than a human can ever withstand, Here it is 30 years later and this technology has not been revealed.

Whoops, noone ever told me that. I was at MCAS New RIver attending the Ch46e helo mechanic's course, as part of crew-chief training, when the mechs and crews for the Osprey were being trained (in 2003). Our training area on the flightline was pretty close to the V-22s area, and I took plenty of photos of it then. Its too bad that the hard drive that had all my military pictures on it got destroyed, taught me to always keep a backup, lol.

As a side note, as an airplane geek I always thought it was cool that Boeing had a field office right there off the flightline.
I was kinda jealous of the guys and gals who got assigned to work on the V-22 program, as that was what I had wanted (that or the C-130, but I had pretty good eyesight and those with poor eyesight/corrected vision were sent to fixed wing, at least thats what we were told). When I graduated from Aircrew school I ended up assigned to Phrogs, oh well.

Why would we sell one to China? They are already trying to make their own copy with information they've gleaned from their own spy programs. Besides that, it would have a red star, not a red circle. Perhaps you were thinking of Japan? Japan has indeed placed orders for the F-35, though my guess is that none of their airframes have been even built yet, let alone are in testing.

While I worked for a military contractor I watched monitors thru an open door that had a piece of paper on it that said "Blocked Door". I still dont know what that means. I bet the guy just didn't know he was not supposed to take pics.
