Some funny quotes though:
“The Fifth-generation aircraft that we have in the Air Force today and will have in the near future — the F-35 — cannot train in realistic conditions anywhere but in the sim.”
From the evidence, I agree.
Then there is this:
"We, the collective United States of America, can no longer afford to pay $90,000 an hour to fly an aircraft in live training,” Bakke said."
Does he know something we don't? If he is right, we can't have an Air Force shaped around the F-35 disaster.
Heat, real stress, discomfort, g-warm up exercises, real g's. More stress management.
I refer to something we may have thought about before:
Their most faithful disciples were the two cart-horses, Boxer and Clover. These two had great difficulty in thinking anything out for themselves, but having once accepted the pigs as their teachers, they absorbed everything that they were told, and passed it on to the other animals by simple arguments. They were unfailing in their attendance at the secret meetings in the barn, and led the singing of 'Beasts of England', with which the meetings always ended.
