... and Swiss demonstration flight squadron 'Patrouille Suisse' lost an F-5 today in the Netherlands... :-(
Fortunately, the pilot could eject and has only minor injuries.

Time to buy some F35 of our own! I hear they're pretty cheap...
Best regards,

Ha ha....very expensive!

I'm still not convinced they are superior to even equal to the F-22 Raptor. We really should have continued producing those in greater quantities. The Pentagon is investigating restarting production on them, seeking the costs to do so. And of course, as the technology has improved, adapting accordingly.
