A U.S. Marine Corps F-35B burst into flames mid-flight Oct. 27, causing more than $2 million in damage to the aircraft.

The U.S. F-35 program is famously the most expensive weapons program in history, costing taxpayers nearly $400 billion since launching in 2001. The F-35 program came in $200 billion over budget, and three years behind schedule. The incident, which occurred over Beaufort, South Carolina, is the latest in a series of spontaneous fires plaguing the F-35 program.

This aircraft has been a nightmare - late, over-budget, continuous problems that has repeatedly grounded it...

Agree. Cancel that program, buy at least 200 more Warthogs. A proven aircraft in this day of asymetric warfare.

Readers may have a problem scrolling in the crime family thread, though we mentioned Jasper County for the Clinton mafia last night, which is the neigboring county to Beaufort. Not an auspicious sign for the Clintons.
