Nothing is what it used to be.
Wish we could just buy some more F-15SE and build the F-22 numbers up to what they were supposed to be and SK the F-35. It jut isn’t worth it.
Yeah, well, asking the USAF brass to buy more of a 20 year old design is like asking your wife to buy a 20 year old dress at the consignment shop. Gotta have what’s in the show windows at the mall!!!
