"Airshow" MacKay flames out...again

Ok, one more F35 post, and then I promise to leave it alone, but Airshow's Ground Proximity Warning System has failed again and we at the careening Beaver are dutybound to investigate and document.

Globe and Mail (h/t Guest [Brian?]):

So what happens if the sole engine in the new F-35 Lightning fails?

“It won’t,” Defence Minister Peter MacKay insisted on Friday. It was a bold prediction and one he will be remembered for making.

It was unclear whether the government proposed renaming the Canadian version of the F35 "Titanic II".
