What really gets me about the F-22 is that despite the huge efforts made to document and archive the parts, toolings and the processes for the
manufacture and upkeep of the planes, it seems there are big gaps...
The above and a few other stories I have heard of parts supplies drying up and especially the needed skills in ADA coding combined with the peculiar
way some of the original coding was done make software upgrades slow and costly.
They tried, they really did, but budget cuts late in the piece forced the guys to cut corners close to two decades ago. Now we pay that price.
