No, I am not talking about the weather.  South Korea firing warning shots at the Russians.  Yeah, what the hell, that is going to end well.

Lockheed is looking to sell an F-16/F-35 hybrid to India.  Frankly, I’d be shocked if they are successful.  However, India is a huge weapons market, so I understand the desire.

Super maneuverable F-35

At the beginning of the F-35 testing, stories came out deriding the F-35 for not being able to dogfight an F-16.  Turns out that those stories might not have been all that they seemed at the time.  While I doubt the F-35 will spend much time dogfighting, it appears to have that ability.

Never heard of this company.  Anyone know anything about them?

Long term project

One of my long term projects is to build one aircraft of an ANG unit from each of the 50 States and Puerto Rico.  With having completed an Indiana Air National Guard P-51 and with Meng announcing  a new F-106 kit, my interest has been rekindled.  So far, this is what I think I’d like to build for selected states:

Indiana     P-51

Michigan, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Montana, Florida, California  F-106

Texas, Pennsylvania   F-102

Kentucky RF-4C

New Mexico F-16

I am open to suggestions for the rest.

I hadn’t heard of this.  It seems like a good idea and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the USAF eventually get some.
