 US admits F-35 failed to replace F-16 as planned, needs new fighter jet

Via 4Branch “This is why I argue for dual sourcing.   OK so Boeing lost the JSF competition, Lockheed has to give them the plans and in the first three years procurement gets split 60/40 between the two plants.  Lockheed gets 60 as a reward for winning the competition.   At the end of three years, whoever delivers planes with less unit-cost gets 60% of the next contract.   At the end of that contract, we re-evaluate again before awarding a weighted contract for the next batch….This damn boondoggle has been in development since Bubba and his lovely wife Bruno were in the White House in the mid-90s.  It should have been in service in numbers 10 years ago.   But here we are and only Lockheed is slowly pumping them out…During World War 2 Vought’s Corsair was also built by Brewster and Goodyear.    GM build Grumman’s Wildcat and Avenger.  Bell built their own P-39 series as well as Curtiss’ P-40.    Ford built Consolidated’s B-24.   Let’s get some of that going so we no longer have only a single source who can cry for more money.”
