Pentagon chief fires head of F-35 aircraft programme

#1
Interesting. If the Pentagon follows previous practice they'll slim down / simplify the scope of the project; perhaps the F35B really is to go?

"US Defence Secretary Robert Gates has sacked the marine general overseeing a $40bn (£25bn) project to build the next generation strike fighter jet.

Mr Gates said the F-35 programme had been plagued by problems and failed to hit performance targets. "
