Absolutely ridiculous that this program was allowed to proceed. It's at LEAST 50% over budget, and computer hackers stole the build plans in 2007 to formulate defensive plans against it. It weighs a piggish 60,000lbs so maneuverability will not be its strong suit. Another negative is it needs air to air refueling, which in one scenario resulted in destruction of the tankers, forcing the planes back to the base.
Why do we continue to throw money at these incredibly expensive boondoggles when we're fighting ragtag terrorists on the ground???
