D. Star: "Delay is plane bonkers"

Discussion in 'The Fleet Air Arm' started by soleil, Aug 2, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Thought this topic was about a new Death Star sort of technology, as seen on Starwars. Will let those more knowledgeable on aviation to comment.
    Anyway what are you doing reading the Daily Star... Would have thought Hansard was more up your street Soliel :wink:
  2. FFS i'd love us to have F35 but it's getting beyond a joke now. It gets to a pretty poor situation when navalising Typhoon looks to be easier and cheaper!!!

    (for non aviation followers this would be a horrendously long and expensive situation to be in...)
  3. Delayed or not they will still burn through the deck!
  4. How very emotive. The average "Star" reader will probably think they are the self same machines.
  5. Can someone tell me why we're buying a plane that hasn't even finsihed it's development trials yet but is already going into production? What happens if they find a basic design flaw after they've already start delivering the things?

    £60 Million for an F-35B? I'd be thinking more like £90+ if it ever works as advertised.

    Rafale-M anyone?
