WASHINGTON (Web Desk) – Air Force Maj. Gen. James F. Martin Jr. fainted at the rostrum during a media briefing.

He was talking about the F-35 plane in Pentagon on Wednesday.

The high-ranking officer was delivering a report on the Air Force budget and in particular about the future of the ill-fated F-35 program when he experienced a dizzy spell.

On February 10, the Pentagon reported that troubled US F-35 fighter jet needs more engine changes.

The general was taken to a rest room and then to a hospital for a medical check-up.

It was later revealed that he was suffering from a cold. He returned to work Wednesday and was said to be fine, according to Air Force Times.
