With the MoD procurement process I'm sure you'll be deploying these amazing aircraft as early as 2095!

Go Canada! :rock:

2095 is if the project is fast-tracked. 2195 is when we'll take our 1st delivery.

I won't bitch at the MoD too much because the USAF plans to keep the B-52 in service well past the 80th anniversary of when it first entered service.

LOL! I remember being pissed off having to work on the B-52 (which I considered a relic) in the mid 80's. It was tough after working on F-16's which at the time were state of the art. Its actually been an amazing aircraft. Never have we gotten so much bang for our buck as with the B-52, along with the C-130, and the KC-135. Its amazing how many aircraft have came and gone since the B-52. If one tenth of our military procurement was this successful we would be a lot better off.
