The 117 is nowhere near 1 billion each. There were 56 (or so) of them built so the cost to maintain them is getter to be more and more each year. Holloman will be getting the raptor (better all around) in the next several years. Of course they have to wait until Elmendorf and Hickam get theirs.Dang!I seen that on the news the other day,they said they were gonna be retired.
***?what were they,like a Billion dollars each?
If it still flys,*** would they junk it for?
