Reuters reports:

The Pentagon on Monday said it was temporarily suspending high-speed ground and flight operations of more than 15 Lockheed Martin Corp F-35 fighter jets after discovering improperly packed parachutes under the pilot’s ejection seat.

The move affects six Air Force variants of the F-35 fighter jet based at Edwards Air Force Base in California, which means flight testing there will be halted until the parachute issues are resolved, according to Lockheed spokeswoman Laurie Quincy.
