The head of the DOD F-35 program has stated production of the F-35 must slow down.
The reasons are those that the critics have already mentioned for years: the concurrency built into the original F-35 business plan is just too much to handle.
The original F-35 business plan is officially…officially dead.
Richard Whittle over at AOL Defense has the breaking story. Read all of it.
For some of us, the idea that the F-35 program had troubles with hair on them is not news.
What is news is that somebody with responsibility is starting to tell it like it is.
In my opinion Admiral Venlet still has some work to do. For instance: understanding that even as- delivered, the F-35 doesn’t bring enough for real U.S. tac-air value. However, I understand he is also a prisoner of the DOD project management system.
