Mark Collins - The Never-Ending Fixed-Wing SAR Never Never Land Mark Collins - US “Air-Sea Battle”: Where’s the Beef? Part 2 (and the CF?)

It’s here. Note the “Archives” where the RCAF’s case for the F-35 as the only choice is relentlessly preserved, e.g. here (”3. F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF”) and here (”Mandatory Capabilities / Requirements”).

Meanwhile some website, er, scrubbing appears to have been reversed. Plus the latest news:

F-35 Deal Targets Lower Price, More Shared Risk

Lockheed Profit on F-35 Jets Will Rise With New Contract

Latest F-35 Unit Costs Now Exceed $223 million
[average across all three versions, make of the figuring what you will]

USAF Finally Begins F-35 Pilot Training [more here]

And here’s the F-35 saga as chronicled at this blog.
