GE-Rolls continue fight for second F-35 jet engine

GE-Rolls continue fight for second F-35 jet engine: "

General Electric Co and Britain's Rolls Royce on Tuesday vowed to continue work on a second engine for the Lockheed Martin Corp F-35 fighter jet despite news that a compromise fiscal 2011 defense budget will not fund the program.

'We will work closely with our congressional supporters to bring competing JSF engines to the fiscal 2012 budget process,' GE spokesman Rick Kennedy said in a statement.

'With the development program nearly complete, we have no intention of abandoning this engine.'
