Two entries initially caught my attention, (all the dots made me dizzy):

"Some Testing is Best Left to the Simulator" :shock:

The "Tower Flyby" Scenario....Is that to visually check gear position....or C model only to get the controller to spill his coffee? :D

So next year F-35s will outnumber EF Typhoon also which is the most produced Eurocanard. Year after that it will outnumber Super Hornet... Pretty incredible production rate.

They list Turkey as purchasing 100 F-35A's as part of the Program of Record, albeit with the footnote that the US DoD announced plans on July 17, 2019 to remove Turkey.

But... NO mention of Polish purchase?

And was it Denmark or the Netherlands that announced plans to purchase additional Lightnings?

Also, hasn't Singapore announced plans (and been approved) to purchase a handful of aircraft? Four or six?

Lastly, why 88 for Canaduh? Had Canaduh originally announced plans to purchase 88? (I thought it was 60 or 66?)
Take an F-16, stir in A-7, dollop of F-117, gob of F-22, dash of F/A-18, sprinkle with AV-8B, stir well + bake. Whaddya get? F-35.
