Vantage Point: The aviation photography of Jon Pece


Yeah, you keep telling yourself that what you claim makes “sense”.

Sure seems to me that the F-18 was announced to be ready, and then a year or two later it was on carriers.

Have no idea when it started, I’m sure it was in the late 1970s and I’m sure there were delays, but not ones that called the whole project into question. As I already said, the F22 flies, though it has an oxygen system which keeps killing pilots when it’s used at very high altitudes.

If the aircraft is announced, approved, and then a schedule for integration into services is announced, but that keeps slipping and slipping again, it’s a safe bet that there are really serious problems with the plane. Number one in this case, trying to make a plane to replace so many others–including, but not limited to, the vaunted F-16 and A-10.
