I’m listening to the webcast of the hearing by the Air and Land Forces subcommittee, which is chaired by Rep. Neil Abercrombie, of Hawaii. He is at this moment giving Sue Payton, assistant secretary of the air force for acquisition, an epic tongue-lashing. Some unprintable words, even for this blog, have been used. I will post a full transcript as soon as it becomes available. It’s about the unit cost differential between the US Air Force budget for the Joint Cargo Aircraft and the US Army’s budget.
