“El-cheapo air-show jets”

Pinch comments on the recent Chopping up Tomcats story and on the new 1-aircraft navy.

  1. I like Pinch’s picture of the F-18 refuling itself. It looks like it is kissing its own ass.

  2. Pinch’s posts are the best I have ever read on fighter jet realities. And I repeat, EVER. But I also think those ‘air show jets’ have done an excellent job of dominating the airspace/battlefield for the past 15 years or so. There’s a lot to be said for ‘adequate technology’.
