The Strike Eagle can carry as many missiles, can stay on station for longer and has as good a radar as the F-15C.  It only has a seat extra but that could either be made into a single seat or train WSOs.

You mean to give free rides to visiting Col and Generals?

So if you make a politician barf in the back, do you get free drinks in the Mess afterwards?

Not really. I can assure you, it won't be the politician doing "clean up on aisle four"...

My experience was that the person doing the barfing was the one who bought the drinks!!

Airbus is a huge winner too.  They get half of all production profits and with the restrictions lifted and with Airbus backing it  AND with the proven benefits of the aircraft (just ask Baltic or Swiss) the sales should start multiplying.  They are going to need that second production line.

If you bought BBD two years ago, you're now up over 300%...

Though if you bought a decade ago you're down about 50%.
