The F35. Why are we spending all that money?

There has been a lot of “talk” about the F35. The cost of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program found itself in President Trump’s crosshairs. The program is the most expensive military weapons system in history (figure $100 million per plane at present). The reason one hears so many variants of the cost of the F35 is that its cost has been coming down.

The F35 is actually several planes designed for the Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps (this is a vertical takeoff variant). Why should we spend all this money?

The following video helps to understand why, despite cost overruns and delays, the project continues to move forward (and, yes, the video was produced by Lockheed Martin – so, put that into your computation as needed).

And thanks to BC for sending this to me.

    I wanted to see it, but it did’t activate.

    “We” aren’t actually spending all that money – the U.S. government is. Of course it’s money that was stolen from we the people, but we’re not the ones spending it. If the money were in my power to spend, I would attempt to give it back to its rightful owners.
