This is tragic and unnecessary. You have to wonder after this crash, the Blue Angels F18 crash and yet another crash this year you have make the connection of the lack of parts for your military aircraft determined by this administration after cutbacks is directly responsible. Your military is at WWI numbers. We can’t even do the norm “do more with less” because we are at our last resorts.
When your own Commanders are telling you it’s not working, you know you have a problem. This airwing commander says just that.
Marines adapt and overcome(of course) as we did by taking (borrowing) F18 parts out of the aircraft bone yard. Wait a second, so your telling me Marines have to go to an air museum and bone yard to get parts? Yup, because with cut backs, there are no parts available. Does that sound like we are “ready” to defend this country? Nope. Also, do you think that is a direct correlation to these crashes? I would say so. Time for a C-Gar
