If it doesn't come with a full payload of ordinance then they can stick it!

Re: Want to by an F/A 18A Hornet???

I work on Hornets for a living, and they get retired for damn good reasons. Blue Angels jets go thru such work-outs that their airframe life is next to nothing.

Considering how much we spend keeping ours maintained and flying, you'd need a hellva lot more than 9 million if you wanted it to fly more than once. Too bad it would have all outdated Avionics/Computers and anything worth anything removed, not even worth buying for a third world country to copy, haha.

Would be interesting in the driveway though!

Cheers.. Tim
