TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan’s defence ministry said it would restart flights of the F-35 stealth fighter aircraft on Thursday for the first time since a crash in April, resulting from pilot disorientation.

The aircraft that crashed in April was less than a year old and the first F-35 assembled in Japan.
