    F-35 news roundup

    That's great! The B is more Bee like by the day. IIRC the first aircraft to do this was the Yak-38 if you believe that

    They may well go early, but if there is anything this program has learned the hard way it's not to set deadlines and make early promises. If they get there early there will be fanfare AFTER they arrive

    That's exactly what it does. Short Rolling Vertical Landing (SRVL) is in the cards for the future.

    F-35 news roundup

    It was indeed. If you remember that PBS show carrier from 10 years ago the officers and pilots were complaining about the same thing. Take off hit tanker twice, loiter until tanking, then duck out early for the ever important landing back on the ship phase and hit the tanker back twice on the way. The griping happens a few times when they hit the Persian gulf over the course of a few episodes. It's a paradox. You bought the stuff you might as well use it. If you dont use it people complain about that too. The ships are sailing and the planes are flying, might as well have them do something...

    Why ebay? Scalping?

    None of my stuff is selling on EBay if thats any consolation. And I tried to price it 10 percent under the lowest stuff. YMMV

    F-35Bs stopped in A-stan before flying back to the ship. (Also Muh, Gun pod!)

    Its a little late to be complaining about how we use ship based naval air assets to do strikes in the Global War on Terror... This just in: we are spending waaayyy too much money to bomb guys with RPGs!! LOL yeah we know.

    There are billion$ of reasons, but it doesnt matter. Strange that the Marines have such a different view than the elite 82nd. I've got my first hand accounts as well. But back to the regular F-35 griping.
