If the trend continues, in another 25 years, we'll have just one fighter, and one bomber, in the USAF.

Not one type.

One airframe each.

They'll be GREAT planes. Probably able to outfight the Millenium Falcon.

But if those two planes go down, we could lose air superiority to a couple of beat out MiG 21s.

Reminds me a an old Air Force joke I heard many years ago during the cold war. In the future, the USA will develop a fighter that can single handedly destroy the entire Soviet fighter force.... and we will only be able to afford one of them!
