President George W. Bush and Britain Prime Minister Tony Blair have signed off on an agreement to step up Britain’s access to sensitive technology in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Britain, along with other partners in the JSF program, had complained about the slow pace that technology is being transferred throughout the program. Britain has committed $2 billion to developing the fighter aircraft. “Both governments agree that the UK will have the ability to successfully operate, upgrade, employ and maintain the Joint Strike Fighter such that the UK retains operational sovereignty over the aircraft,” the two parties said in a joint statement. Other partnering countries in the JSF program include Italy, the Netherlands, Turkey, Canada, Australia, Denmark and Norway.
