Yeah, but HUDs are sooooo 20th century...
Take an F-16, add a dollop of A-7, a big gob of F-22, sprinkle on some AV-8B, stir well, then bake. What do you get? An F-35.

I"m not going to judge Trump or Obama for mixing up numbers as I'm sure they both have a lot of things to do. People make mistakes.

Everybody is making mistakes however what one can do is to look at the frequency (i.e. how often mistakes are being made). If the frequency is very high then there are reasons to make comments and be concerned.

I don't remember if there's any consensus on how the SR-71 designation was arrived at, but another story I've heard is that Curtis LeMay preferred the SR-71 designation and arranged for Johnson's speech to be edited accordingly.


Also, there are certainly legitimate things to find fault with the president, but obsessing over every single ****** little thing like this is stupid, and is just another sign of the media's Trump Derangement Syndrome. (Also, the F-52 is only 5 less than the number of US states!)
