VIDEO: Bill Sweetman vs F-35

Few reporters have been as critical — and insightful — about the Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter as my friend Bill Sweetman, editor of Defense Technology International magazine. Sweetman attended the program’s press conference today at the AFA 2009 convention, and asked the question below.

    Bill Sweetman sure called that one right. The F-35 is turning out to be the most expensive static display model program in Aviation histroy.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.

    Ive read Bill Sweerman since I was a kid and I was always a bit on the fende about some of the qualms people have had about some of his claims (you all know what I mean), not that Iit didnt make for interesting reading.
    Anyway, this is absolute classic, if he wasnt my favourite journalist in thr the field before he sure is now, its straight out of the Helen Thomas playbook.

    Spare a thought for poor us in australia, no strategic assets to speak of and politically speaking no alternatives, sink or swim its the F-35 for us. Unless of course the thing doesnt survive budget cuts or the death spiral, then we get 30 years of super hornets, if only we had an aircraft carrier…I have to assume that not getting strike eagles was a decision not to upset indonesia otherwise its criminally negligent that we ended up with bigger badder f-17s. Sigh, I suppose we will be fine assuming we dont need an effective operational airforce, which we dont really, in which case we could have spent the money on curing cancer, SETI or a national yacht giveaway.
