The Air Force announced Monday that its F-35A Lightning IIs are flying again, after a recall related to the aircraft's ejection seats grounded the fighter jets late last month.

Martin-Baker, a U.K. manufacturer, identified a problem with some of its cartridge-actuated devices -- explosive components used to launch an ejection seat out of the cockpit -- earlier this year.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
