You think that delivering a total of NINE aircraft, and having your over budget average be 50% is GOOD? If you can't even keep the overall cost of that few aircraft low, what are you going to do with 100 aircraft?
As for the tanker, yes, it's over budget, but it's fixed price. That means that Boeing has paid almost every dime of it, not the government. And it will continue to get better as they go. The F-35 has dropped in price with every LRIP, and is trending down.
