That you cant find the source is totally understandable. That you actually believed you can build a 5th generation military fighter jet for less than a Bugatti Veyron...thats unbelievable.

When I first read about this plane I was completely on board with the hype. The tech sounded fantastic, the cost reasonable, all the promises. Everything seemed to cool. Read more

A used Cessna Caravan turboprop goes for about $2 million. Not sure how a 5th gen fighter aircraft can be had for half that price.

I want to see sources on that million number you stated. I know damn well that the F-35 costs have ballooned but that’s what people are coming at you about. It’s currently projected to cost $85m per airframe at full level production which is pretty much in line with the market for an advanced fighter today. Even in Read more

Amazingly, if you stop to listen to what the pilots and maintainers say (remember the F-35 crew chief that wrote a guest spot for FA?) about the F-35, a lot of the criticism starts to not really make sense anymore.

The Chinese copy-cat version that’s made of balsa wood and coat hangers is probably made for $1M.

People seem to forget about the problems and troubles new aircraft and technology can bring. Look back at the F-111 and F-14, not to mention the Harrier. All sorts of losses and failures. But when they were worked out these aircraft became a force to be reckoned with.

Give it time, it’s new. Not an old plane with new Read more
