Maybe it IS worth the astronomical price tag, or  maybe it isn't.  I don't know who to believe or trust.

To know if  this guy is part of the "military industrial complex" Eisenhower warned us of , vs a true independent objective observer analyst is impossible to know.  But when a ton of money is involved all bets are off. in mho.

Would a team of pilots who are not connected to special interests be the best judge?  I don't know.
