Anti aircraft rocket technology is , alas , developing a bit faster than the F-35 . The .4 trillion dollar jet will be good target practice for a ground to air missle which might cost about 5 million bucks . Sell them to foreigners and let Raytheon shoot 'em down , if they ever see action .

I can tell that this air-plane is decidedly UGLY.

And ugly air-planes never fly well.....

I'm wondering how much of the negative info that comes out about the F-35 is bogus - just to confuse and throw off foreign countries that may be trying to duplicate it in some way. Of all the money that has been put into the F-35, these reoccurring problems can be fixed easily.

Sorry 35 year old jets the f-18 was the f17 in completion against the f-16 in 1978

we need the joint strike fighter as we only sell weapons anymore and what they aren't saying is 3/4 the cost is recouped by foreign sales!!! and without the next fighter we cannot maintain our position as the best in the world period not to mention why put 20 year old jets on a brand new carrier?

The Federal government thinks they can run a low cost health care system too.

I always wondered what happened to the offspring of the Keystone Cops.

Now I know.

Mechanical beauty is in simplicity, even in the event of a complex machine. The plane is obviously no where close for use. Still a experiment with need for great refinement. No guinea pigs should ever go to war.

I would prefer a manual jet. Something I can control. I know. USA Government is made from absolute money laundering corporations.
