F-35 short-circuit

OK, maybe the odd post. The mis-engineered pile of alloy that is the F-35 apparently now has fleet-grounding electrical problems.

Come on, RCAF! If you really want this 'airplane' you might actually have to drop the "Air" from your shiny new old name.

Great news, Boris!

The F-35A is being used in training classes about 10 miles from our place in Florida. This oughta keep "the sound of freedom" mighty quiet for awhile.

What a colossal waste of Canadian and USian $$ . . . .

But there's quite a bit more--see the post Monday at the Canadian Defence & Foreign Affairs Institute's "3Ds Blog".

I hope it doesn't break completely, then Harper will have an excuse to get out of the deal that might actually seem reasonable.
