Even funnier is, if you do a Google search for "gaff", what images come up.

Highly corrosive, needed a fresh water wash down immediately after exposure.

Looks like someone had forgotten "windshield" wipers. At the price of that superplane.

I think the same thing happened with a Virgin Airlines plane on its maiden flight.

Virgin airlines? Which one? There’s no such thing as virgin airlines!
There is a Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Australia. And there was a Virgin America and Virgin Express.
So, again, which one??🤔🙄

Maybe the firefighters know that the F-35 is a flaming pile of doo-doo, and they were making a statement?
