At an estimated cost of $135 million per airplane, Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter is the most expensive weapons program in U.S. history. When the fighter finally becomes fully operational, will it be worth the price tag?

    NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They (Congress) Can spend all the money they want, its we who must pay for it, At the end of the month they (Congress) are at the present time, are not going to pay anyone. Come home Military. Your government has let you down again. I have 21 years military, and I will vote to replace everyone in Washor=ton. Lets stop wondering where our next pay check is coming. (Washo=rton-Richville US)
    Do you all think that the F-35 is the best we can do. After all the years to get the thing working, you do not think that we can’t Design something more advanced. Where are all the new, up to date engineers, spending there time ??????????????. Oh, I forgot, they take whatever comes along, because the government can not pay them. Why, the money has to go to try to get the F-35 into shape !!.

    Like the F 22 it is very expensive and so far neither have shown too much promise, the F 22 production stopped early and it has had problems which have cost a great deal and need very high maintenance.
