I might be adding 2 & 2 together and getting 47 but...

could this be a bit of a smoke screen... they are cutting over half of the very expensive F35's

there has also been a contract awarded for the electro-magnatic cats

and we have some navy pilots training with the USN flying F18's doing carrier landings/take offs

the F18 costs way less(saving money) than the F35 and is ready now.

I dont think its reaching to far to think that this might be the thinking...

buy the two carriers, scrap the F35's (or the ones that go vertical) buy F18's for use until the cat launched F35's come online.

the F18's would make a lots of sense.. meaning we could use our carriers with USN aircraft. and vice versa.

and if we do get cats on the carriers (please god) we can then buy a couple of the Hawkeye EAW's

The United States Navy has a large number of F/A-18 'baby hornets' in storage and have offered some to us free of charge at one point in the not too distant past.

Most of the world now. Cool Britannia, trend setters. :oops:

Commando, you say. Is that like "all fur coat and no knickers"?

A bit too close to the truth there I suspect. :wink:

Does it have to be jets?
There is a thread on here about a restored Firefly taking to the skies, can't they commandeer that.
