Thats right. Though I guess if you can put the entire aircraft off boresight, its not THAT much of a problem.
Few more shots here.
If I didnt know better, Id say the USAF was quietly lobbying to have their aircraft put out of their misery.
aren't those pics of the demo team though?
It is, but what is it saying that they are putting aircraft like that in front of the public? Its not sending a particularly great signal.
or it's saying we aren't wasting the limited funding or time to do the up-keep to keep it 'combat' ready.....?
or who knows, maybe at of the show season they go in for extensive skin 'repairs'...?
Well they built less than 200 airframes. What is the USAF saying that it doesnt need to keep all of the pitifully small number it has combat ready?
