Gawd they're ugly.

Still hoping Canada buys the SuperHornet with the updated engines and electronics
My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

Ok. I get the feeling someone is not being straight up on the real status of the F-35.......

The Israeli input supposedly has made the F-35 a technologic wonder.

I would really like to know who wrote that.  I know some of the SP authors, but that doesn't read like any of the ones I know.
