For an F-18C/D the cost of fuel and the AVDLR cost (Aviation Depot Level Repair. Basically taking all the depot level repairs for a year and then averaging them into a flight hour) is about 4k an hour

The F-18E/F is around 3.2k. They're newer, so less chit breaks.

I never worked much with the F-14's. If I was at work I could look up the data, but I'd say it was probably close to 6k.

The F-14 was a really cool aircraft, but in todays terms its considered a dumb aircraft. No integrated vehicle health monitoring system. So the techs had to be real mechanics and troubleshooters since there was no computer telling them what was wrong. The result - a lot of parts being changed out that didn't need to be.

With the F-18 we have BIT (built in test) which pops a code when something malfunctions. The troubleshooters can use that code to pinpoint the faulty WRA.

"Welcome to Die Terrorists Die. This video once again features some amazing clips and images of various US and Allied Armed Forces, and is considered the sequel to Taliban Bodies. The music this time is "Die M.F. Die", by Dope, a band who grew up where I now live in West Palm Beach, FL. The song is hard, it's loud, and it pretty much makes my point to the terrorists clear - Die MF's!"


Ya baby!!! Thats my favortie live band!! Cool huh!
