No slinking away, I do have to sleep sometimes you know? The facts do support my conclusion that the F-35 program is currently in a death spiral as it's defined in the software project management world. I have made clear it's possible they'll get out of it, it's also possible they won't and that Block3F will never be delivered.

But hey, yeah it's absolutely fine that defense companies never ever have to take responsibility or take a dive in their profits because when they bid on a contract for a certain delivery and then take 10 years longer than they said to deliver. They fully deserve the $5 billion a year profit they make!
