Anyone know what the development of this cost?  Have you ever thought of how many previous jets the US designed and paid for delivery on for less than this cost to develop?   It can't even get out of its own way in a dogfight...   Sorry we lost you John Boyd, and where are you Pierre Sprey?  Is there even a fighter mafia anymore to unscrew this kinda deal?  It's shameful.  Cancel this!  Get us a real fighter!

F-35A Lightning II in Flight. It really should be called the Phantom III given how fat and ungainly it is.
