The F35 JSF?!?!
The term alone is already becoming more and more "dirty". That plane is a lot like Google actually...that plane is already so long in beta that alternative fighter planes are already taken out of commission because they themselves already become too old.
I think that plane was intended to replace the F16 in the Dutch air-force for more than 10 years now, each plane costing almost twice as much as initially specified by the manufacturer. Only last week the first one is delivered to see if it up to the task.
If you would ask me (and I know that no-one did) that plane is either too advanced for its own good or aeronautical engineers are not as good as they once were.
Day late, dollar short anyone?
The Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) is a collectively built aircraft being built by the U.S., The United Kingdom, Italy, Israel, Netherlands, Australia, Canada, Norway, Denmark, and Turkey, each making a specific part of the aircraft.
Was there any doubt that there was going to be problems with this? It takes years to work out the bugs of an advanced technology aircraft, but when being made from so many nations, there are going to be problems, I knew this was going to be a clusterf#@k from the start.
Now back on topic..... So Obooboo now says he's into the whistleblower system. OK, it it just me, or does he flip-flop like a highway patrolman on a busy interstate?
