Indeed, T28B. I took the time to skim some early pages the other day. The thread started after the US program director, Mike Heinz, had been fired ("Heinz Gets Canned" as some evilminded headline writer put it) and just as the MoD began its lurch towards cats and traps, with Boeing quietly pushing the Super Hornet. The new program boss was in the process of defenestrating most of the senior management and it would take another three years before anyone could commit to a schedule or a budget. I suspect from that evidence that the picture on the inside was worse than the most avid naysayer could imagine.
