The Airfarce must have its own money mill. F-35’s are hugely expensive campared to Warthogs. And the Hogs are really good at what they do including being reliable-—something not proven for F-35’s yet. I’d hate to see them go but that’s just me. I think P-51’s still have a mission if we had a few but that’s just me——2,000 horsepower coming in low and slow with sixguns flaming was enough to back off the entire German and Jap armies. Should be enough to re-educate the occasional band of muzzie dirtbagz.
