I see the USAF has found a role for their early F-35As. Saves the cost of working out how to upgrade them for I suppose.

Will they bother to keep the stealth skin up to scratch? And security iterating away from home base at air shows will doubtless be an issue, as will dragging a mobile ALIS around.

Then in there is the cost - the first $1B+ display team?
