Weve ordered 138 @ £98 million each....so much for trade war with the US (www.bbc.co.uk) More...

"A fifth jet which set off from the US Marine base returned to South Carolina after the aircraft took fuel from an airborne RAF tanker."

Was this a planned return or did a flight of 5 have an 80% success rate for the mission?

From reading the RAF website it was always meant to be four aircraft.
Perhaps the other was just a training flight.

Could we get some consistency in reporting correct figures accurately? Your tag line £98m - link to BBC £92m - widely reported in press and media £150m (even if should have been quoted in $$ this would be £111m)

Timt to up the game level

And also these planes are not just an American plane. A lot of it is made over here, and in Europe.
It was originally labelled the joint strike fighter for a nato role.

a lot of money for a plane with one engine...the USAF did not sell the F22
to other countries, they keep the good stuff for themselves.
