Yes, its mind boggling to say the least, our last regime damn near killed me? (yes, I did have a heart-attack and bypass), well it could have been all that good food?? Anyway, the budget is up for now, and we are building F-35s, that is indeed exciting!Yep the F-35 DEATH SPIRAL (as touted by some) is truly impressive. However the endless US Budget UPS & downs leave me bamboozled. Tell me when it is over.
I was very impressed to see a couple of A models last summer at the Scott AFB open house, while I was separated by a rope, it was the 2 Air Force SP's with M-16s that kept me from asking to "touch it"? The finish almost looks organic its so "SLICK"...
the naysayers continue to do all they can to disrupt this fragile process, its indeed sad to those who love freedom and realize it must be defended 24/7.
I'm hoping the F-35 will get a "Demo Team" next year like the Raptor, I'd love to see it fly, and sadly I've missed that so far.
