Good old fashion P-51 or DC3 would not have those kind of trouble too much technology and too complex it is time to make simpler and stronger!!!!!!
The F-14 was far superior than the F-18!!!!
This is useless to have upgrade with a scew up design. The JSF is the most useless weapon ever designed by LMCO. They used to be better at manufacturing splendid birds SR-71 for example. Kelly...
Dassault Rafale is better because only one player was involved and no others one, unlike JSF witch was built for doing too much things with too much people.
A young design has always flaws, they have to solve it and period. Test pilots are made for being a fuse, it comes with the territory.
