The Pentagon has cleared the F-35 fighter jet to take flight, less than two weeks after the fleet was grounded. According to a statement from the Defense Department, the F-35 fleet will have limited flight clearance that includes extra engine inspections.

An engine fire in an Ff-35 at Eglin Air Force Base last month prompted military officials to ground the planes. The Pentagon says it's hopeful its most expensive weapons project ever will make a highly-anticipated appearance at the Farnborough Air Show in England.
