    Could we please be more professional here, we've lost an airplane and a pilot, out of respect, could we leave the "wack job" speculation to the wack jobs on other forums???

    Its quite likely that its little more than "disorientation" caused by maneuvering over water at night,,, its very, very, dangerous... the pilot is in his 40's, this new tech is definitely less intuitive to gents who's whole flying history is steam gauges.....

    I do NOT like "glass cockpits", I really don't, had I learned to fly using electronic displays?? no doubt I would feel the exact opposite....

    so the glass cockpit, with the real cool helmet provide "data saturation".... too much data is as bad as too little!

    wouldn't surprise me if he lost situational awareness and flew the airplane into the water, but lets wait for more information. He did signal to the rest of the flight to "abort the mission"? that's anecdotal at this juncture.......

    Nice try to spin it as negative only for Turkey.


    I never imagined to see this high price that the US has to pay for its meddling in Ukraine / Syria / Iraq.

    Wow.

    All monkeying about the f35/s400 will make a plethora of opportunities for Russia/ Turkey/ Iran/China.

    This is echo chamber territory we're in.

    you claimed it was great to have so many industrial participants in the program Today at 7:16 AM
    while this is a ridiculous idea according to me:
    supply chain should be as SHORT as possible, not as LONG as possible

    No, its great to share developmental and production costs. I agree with you that the supply chain should be as short as possible. Its awesome to have as many end users buying and operating a common airframe, that my friend has driven costs way down, and the F-35 is an extremely agile powerful aircraft kinematically, what it does electronically is almost miraculous.
