Re: similar looking aircraft

It's worth noting that the F14 and F15 were both "cheaper faster" aircraft using lessons from the F-111B program.

The importance of that is that the F-111B was almost as large a clusterfuck as the F35 project, but eventually common sense prevailed and it was scrapped. It appears that amongst the lessons learned by aircraft makers was "how to ensure your program doesn't get killed off"
