Lockheed Martin stocks were down about four percent in early trading Monday after President-elect Donald Trump blasted "out of control" costs for the F-35 stealth fighter program.With a current development and acquisition price tag of $379 billion for a total of 2,443 F-35 aircraft – most of them destined for the Air Force – the Lockheed Martin-built plane is the most expensive in history.Once servicing and maintenance costs for the F-35 are factored in over the aircraft's lifespan through 2070, overall program costs are expected to soar to $1.5 trillion.The Air Force's F-35A is one of three variants of the aircraft, designed to conduct conventional landings and take-offs.
