After all of the It-Will-Never-Fly Drum & Bugle Corps action around here every time the bird got mentioned, do you know when we’re going to have the mass ROFLMAO and Crow Banquet for them?

Make sure U-238 gets the end cut.

Its time for the F-35 to move over at let the F-22 take over.Produce the number ordered and that is it. The F-22 or the F-15 Silent Eagle has proven its worth. It has been in testing too long.

Probably a fine point, but I do believe that he was referring to the F-35A there. Same family name, but vastly different missions. (B’s all that the Jarheads have been praying for since Desert Storm, but I’d be careful to want one in a furrball where the DoubleDeuce or Eagles come to play.)

When the AF finally crawls off the dime and announces their activation, we can have a separate party if you like.

U238 (and certainly me) will probably buy a round.

Yes I said that. It does not negate the fact it costs a $100 million dollars a plane A.A. and every country is cutting back their orders. Most countries are switching to the F-22 and the Silent Eagle.. Or you have forgotten about that. A very short memory

Its cheaper to build a Silent Eagle and a F-22. Its all mathematics and cost.
