And he thought the F-22 was a waste of money.What a freakin' warrior. A handle bar mustache, his cover tipped to the side, and his revolver on his hip (after bagging a -21).... They should just cast a bronze statue of him and place it in front of the Weaons School at Nellis.
Many people have that thought. Right or wrong, we have a tremendous amount of Fighters that are wearing out. My old Guard unit is parking their F-16C block 30's next year. The replacement jets will only have 2 years left on them. Getting 2 F-35's (multi-role) for the price of 1 F-22 may be a necessity. Even with that there are going to be many Guard/Reserve units that will continue to go out of the Fighter business the next few years and maybe out of the flying business all together.And he thought the F-22 was a waste of money.
