    General news thread

    Kanye West is now an expert in hydrogen powered air transport, proposes to ditch Air Force One for "Apple-made" iPlane One. Yes, this is for real. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/11/kanyes-apple-iplane-1-for-trump-was-designed-by-someone-else.html

    The Meteorology Thread: Hector Lives

    I was there, some roads got flooded and some trees got ripped out... otherwise, it was just loads of rain for a couple of days.

    Bash the F-35 thred.

    IMO, this excerpt is even more interesting: Gives new meaning to "shoot and scoot".

    Sounds like probe and drogue is still a problem for the C version.

    "Any day now" http://airforcemag.com/Features/Pages/2018/August 2018/Two-Years-On-Goldfein-Says-Operations-Show-F-35-a-Game-Changer.aspx I thought DOT&E said there's no way fleet-wide availability can rise any time soon?

    No, it has better wing loading, therefore better at everything. /s

    Bash the F-35 thred.

    I can't believe people still claim A and B variant are "handicapped" because of B's lift fan. Is googling "F-35 variants" so flipping hard?! I mean, it may have been a funny meme once upon a time, but by god has it overstayed its welcome. edit: I've decided to make this and leave it here, maybe someone might find it useful.

    Because an F-35 is going to do ground support from below 1000 feet (not that the A-10 does much of that as well once you hang Hellfires and LGBs from it). What's next, judging an A-10 by its ability to go supersonic?

    Why not?

    Bash the F-35 thred.

    The F-35 is bad because "it doesn't have armour". The F-35 is bad because "it's too heavy". Which one is it then!??!?! FFS
