That’s what I was thinking. Just fire up the production lines for the A-10. Problem solved.

Production tooling gone, however reverse engineering with CAD/CAM/FEA and laser scanning maybe more doable than we imagine.

Oh yeah. No problem. Let's see....

The factory is a crumbling hulk in Bethpage, gone for 25 years...

The tooling, the mylars, the analysis, everything, gone gone gone (well, Northrop and the AF have the docs, allegedly)

And the people, who are absolutely the most important component, cuz they know where the bodies are buried in the design...dumped. Gone. Dead (really).

Good luck. Seeya in 5 years. And that's just to start up.
