    I hope my government chuks the F35 in the bin. What are we going to do with such an advanced aircraft? Not that I think it's not a good aircraft but we only have money to buy about 30 which is hardly enough to keep 2 squadrons flying. I think our 80 F16 would do the job as good as the 30 F35's. They should look for a cheaper aircraft which can do the job it is requested to do. Silly politics....
