In a parliamentary speech this week Liberal backbencher Dr Dennis Jensen accuses Tom Burbage, the executive vice president for F-35 program integration at Lockheed Martin of misrepresenting, or at worst, telling lies about aspects of the Joint Strike Fighter’s price and performance.

The criticism of Burbage followed his visit to Australia to discuss the F-35, and considering the generally unquestioning media coverage that ensued, dictate the stories that appeared.

Dr Jensen’s speech as recorded by Hansard is published below, preceded by a YouTube of the actual delivery.

It would be useful if Lockheed Martin were to respond line by line to Dr Jensen, and Plane Talking will be pleased to publish any such response.
