Anyone know what the development of this cost? Have you ever thought of how many previous jets the US designed and paid for delivery on for less than this cost to develop? It can't even get out of its own way in a dogfight... Sorry we lost you John Boyd, and where are you Pierre Sprey? Is there even a fighter mafia anymore to unscrew this kinda deal? It's shameful. Cancel this! Get us a real fighter!
This plane - although politically highly controversial in the Netherlands right now - caught my heart at the @LockheedMartin #LM100 celebrations last month, when I got to fly their cockpit simulator! F35 Lightning (Marine variant)
