Wisconsin congressman puts up posters on Capitol Hill looking for ‘missing’ F-35

One former Navy SEAL-turned-lawmaker poked some fun at the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) for losing track of an F-35 stealth fighter jet.

Wisconsin GOP Rep. Derrick Van Orden posted a pair of videos Monday poking fun at the missing plane mishap that took over the airwaves as the military scrambled to find the jet.

One video, posted with the comment “one team one fight,” shows Van Orden knocking on a Washinton, D.C., townhouse door with a photo of the missing jet.

Joint Base Charleston told Fox News Digital that the debris field was found in Williamsburg County, South Carolina. Officials did not confirm that the debris was from the missing aircraft.

A pilot ejected from the aircraft on Sunday afternoon after a “mishap.” The jet was a Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II that belonged to Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort.

The USMC did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for a reaction to Van Orden’s videos.
