This article by Eric Palmer on his blog echos some concerns that I have been having for several years concerning just what direction our Air Force is heading towards.
Retirement of the B1-B bomber. Taking several squadrons of F-15s and putting them into storage. The great Air Tanker Charlie Foxtrot saga. The T-38 is FINALLY being retired.
Now Palmer goes after the AFA (Air Force Association) for supporting current Air Force policy. And if that policy is bad...
I go into some similar things in a recent posting dealing with the DoD buying Russian helicopters for Afghan military forces.
Anyway, check his blog out.
