When our existing fleet of fighter jets start breaking down and crash landing while practicing for air shows, then perhaps it is time to start thinking about ordering some new equipment for our pilots. Today's crash landing in Lethbridge, where a plane stalled in flight forcing the pilot to eject, should signal to Canadians that we had better buy some new jets. Wait, we already have? Outstanding. Can we ask Lockheed to speed up that first delivery?
Thankfully the pilot only sustained minor injuries.
Earlier this month I asked the question:
DO YOU THINK THE CANADIAN AIR FORCE NEEDS NEW FIGHTER JETS?
