    Don't hold your breath. Lockheed doesn't give anything back. On the other hand, they are building the Joint Strike Fighter, so maybe they'll do better with that? :confused:

    well, if it was a private business to private business transaction, you can bet your bottom dollar there would be some money being given back or a law suit to get it....for the breach of contract.
