I think the USAF seems to have a grasp of the situation as there are more GE powered vipers than PW ones. Any pilots want to get in on this? There seems to be no disappointment in engine choice from what I have read here regarding GE powered Eagles, other than the fact that some one got there pockets lined with some greenbacks. That happens everday...... Look at Boeings fiasco with the first Tanker contract for 100 aircraft. And I agree Biff, GE makes some damn good engines. Hornet population, F-117, B-2, F-16, F-15, F-14, etc... quite a few satisfied customers.

What I'm getting at with my previous posts is how that GE has had some "shady" dealings of late.
Bribes with the Korean officials
CEOs who are under investigation for stock fraud
A company who's status has slipped in the S&P
A huge company that has hinted at a "break-up" then not
I must agree, the J79, J85, F110, etc have been great motors!
I got ya
Times are tough for leading US companies...I'd like to see both Pratt and GE do well...healthy competition
