  • Commanche - Flying?

    I remember reading about the Commanche -Is that a double M? (stealth) chopper....about 7 years ago! I just remembered this question:
    What happened to it? Did it fly? Was the programme cancelled?

        We hemorrhage money like it's going out of style under Obama. But not to worry because what we lose we make up for in volume.

        Or that would have been Senor Bush, but what the heck?

          We burned over 1 billion dollars on Seasprite fiasco - a program that was far smaller and less ambitious. In many ways and given the comparitive sizes of the defence budgets that was far worse.
