Probably shouldn’t have sold off the Harriers

5 retired senior military figures have written an open letter to PM Theresa May in which they warned the collapse in sterling has made US F-35 jets too expensive.
Well whoopee for them. A bit late but hey, at least they wrote!

They are also, in a simple way, giving the Tory party a good slapping for being totally stupid in giving away a valuable, battle proven, CHEAPER plane i.e. the Harrier at a knock down price of £112 million to the USMC.

A move that left the armed forces with only one totally reliable all rounder jet.
The venerable Tornado.

  1. I love the shape of a tornado…… a real plane, and one I can identify the sound of!
