Eurofighter Typhoon: It's EVEN WORSE than we thought


Lewis' Fan Club

I notice Lewis didn't quote sections 1.8 or 2.3 of the report, strange he's normally so careful to provide balanced journalism...

Section 2.3

"The development and installation of progressively enhanced capability across the project is delivering a more capable aircraft than originally envisaged, and as a result, the Department is confident that it will meet required military tasks with fewer aircraft."

Section 1.8

"The Department has built on its experience introducing innovative commercial support arrangements for its Tornado and Harrier fleet and placed contracts for the support and maintenance of the aircraft with BAE Systems and Rolls-Royce in 2009.....performance targets are largely being achieved."

Most expensive RAF aircraft ever takes to the skies


Lewis is a clown

"a painstakingly-restored De Havilland Comet."

By that same logic a 2009 Porsche 911 is just a painstakingly restored 1950s VW Beetle.
