No, I didn't miss it: I celebrated its first flight announcement by having a nice cup of coffee with a friend. Good news that it's gotten past that first milestone.

@Low Observable: given how the procurement world works on this side of the pond, and given how things like JSF (and for that matter, Osprey) eat APN-1 money like no tomorrow (with ripple effects on all other acquisition programs) it was a smarter strategy by the PMA to not go for a clean sheet of paper design. Had that been done, we'd not see it where it is now.

Your criticisms appear to hold a parochial interest. What's your skin in this game?
