I can't wait until 2019 when all the opponent's of the F-35s cost have nothing to say except that the F-35A is cheaper than all forth generation aircraft. Lol

Hmmmm..... and yet the Dept of defenses own fiscal year 2015 budget estimates show an aggregate cost of over $149 million per airframe (it doesn't even breakdown whether that includes a motor or not), less advance procurement or any of the poorly documented and hidden top up bones the JPO keeps throwing them. And lets not forget that the US DoD basically doesn't even conduct proper audits of what it spends so it doesn't even actually know what they truly cost. I would hold off on the laughing Boomer, a so called 3-3.5% saving ain't anything to crow about,especially when nobody can do anything but "estimate" the true cost at this stage. That and the fact that we are already almost 5 years late on the originally promised IOC with more years to go. Yeah very funny,... with other peoples money.

LEE.

No the sound mapping done by several airforces shows them to be significantly louder than the Hornet. What has been happening is Govt's are trying to backpedal and put out misleading statements now on the noise because they realize they could be up for compensation over it.
