Courtney & O-P - valid point. Apologies.

Here's a thought then, and run with me on this. Perhaps the flight report that was leaked was but one of a number about the same subject? For something...

LO,

It's not grammar pedantry to point out what words mean. It's a little odd to correct someone because they use words like 'excuse' and 'arguably' within the generally accepted definitions of...

LO,

I'll try to sharpen up with my choice of words and restrict myself to using the ones you like. Didn't realise I was getting my English homework marked against LO's Rules of Usage of the...

LO,

You have my sympathy if you take it all so personally and you believe LM are lying to you and the rest of the world. In the years I was hanging around the plant in FW I'm afraid all I saw...

LO,

Totally agree on cost & schedule.

If Typhoon had cost the UK the 7bn forecast in 1988 instead of the 22bn the NAO think it cost us (= 60% of 37bn...

LO,

Not sure what I'm supposed to have been drinking. I was just giving an opinion based on years of working on and flying the F-35, Typhoon and F-18 amongst others. Do you honestly believe that...

If I had to go to war again tomorrow, air-air or air-ground, I'd take the F-35B (at Block 2B standard) every single day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I've flown it, I've chased it in single...

If they were thinking about arm pain, then why did they leave the throttles so low down and put so many HOTAS switches on them? Are pilots not supposed to have any feeling in their left arm?

LO & co,

There's no church of fixed plate AESA, just common sense and my experience of working on both fixed and repositioning AESA radar programs. I know which one I prefer by a country mile and...

Oh my sainted trousers! The bashing of the F-35 by the club of the uninformed has finally moved from being just a bit amusing to outright hilarious.

I've flown the F-35B and I've chased it an awful lot in a legacy F-18. The F-35B easily out-climbs the Hornet in dry power and it out-accelerates it in burner through the transonic region. Whenever...

ColdCollation,

I don't think there are many that would dispute that a Super Hornet & UAV mix would be a very fine solution for the UK. But as we all know, military capability is but one of the...

NaB,

I think we're in violent agreement really. I'm looking forward to Ursula Brennan's next trip to the Public Accounts Committee to justify whatever decision is made.

LO, NaB,

Ok, I didn't even make the cut for Staff College so I'm more than happy to be told why I'm barking up totally the wrong tree on this.

So take the cost of hardware changes to the ship...

Gents,

In my limited experience, it is very easy to overlook the amount of effort it takes to fully engineer what would, at first glance, seem to be relatively trivial changes. When all we wanted...

Bastardeaux,

I certainly didn't mean to suggest that I thought the -B was inferior, it's just different. I flew the -B a fair bit, and spent many hours in the sim 'flying' the -C and I much...

Backwards,

I'll stick my head above the parapet and say that I'm not convinced that cats and traps are the way to go.

The 2000lb class weapons in the bay of a -C is a complete red herring to...

Couple of points to throw into the -B vs -C debate in an attempt to add some balance:

glojo,

I can't say that your pictures look very much like the IPP as I remember it, but I could be wrong.

The heat from the IPP exhaust was all terribly exciting a year or so ago, and legions...
