Did you people know that the F-22 fighter programme was introduced in 1981 a time when many of you guys including me were in our nappies or a twinkle in our parents eyes . Likewise the programme was intended to have replaced the current F-15 programme. Furthermore this project would have taken near enuff 23 years in completion, if not more. Also, guys dont you think that the F-15s should be modified with advance avionics so that they stay in service rather than scrapping them. If not, they should at least sell them off to other nations such as Pakistan, South Africa and Sri Lanka.
