no - you just can't read! In spite of my repeated references to $32,500, F-35-A and the Pentagon F-35 SAR, you choose to ignore all that and fixate on a separate quote where the $18,900 per hour F/A-18 Hornet cost to fly is derived. Two separate references bringing forward the comparison MLW member 'Smallc' focused on... he didn't care for the Pentagon comparison to the F-16, but couldn't be bothered to source the F/A-18 Hornet number himself.
but, of course, this is just you being in your hyper-distraction mode... it is quite comical to read you so flummoxed over the two separate references; notwithstanding you want to make a huuuuge deal about the cost differential between the F-35 variants... anything for you to actually avoid commenting on the $32,500 F-35-A cost per flying hour number, hey? In your distracting world, it's more important to obfuscate over the $32,500 F-35-A versus $30,000 F-35-B/C numbers. It's what you do... it's what you're about.
here... read it/them again!

I suppose you can’t see the difference between operating a Canadian Hornet from a land base versus a US Hornet or Harrier from an aircraft carrier?
The income tax created more criminals than any other single act of government.
Some people regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look on it as a cow they can milk. Not enough people see it as a healthy horse, pulling a sturdy wagon.
Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
