    Considering brand new f-15's are being built today and there are thousands in graveyards parts for that plane shouldn't be a problem for 20+ years.

    So the Canadian Government is now fueding with Boeing over Boeing's claims that canadian company Bombardier has been 'price dumping' their new CS100/300 commercial airliners onto the market.

    If you ask me the government was looking for a way out of the Super Hornet purchase which was fairly uniformly criticized from where I stand, while also re-opening the door to buying the F-35 after making campaign promises not to buy the Lightning II.

    Maybe they will get rid of their legacy Hornets. Still have 4 18C squadrons after all these years.
    Its called Tourist Season. So why can't we shoot them?

    Canada seems to be pulling out of new F-18s. Smart, but now what?

    They'll kick the can down the road until Trudeau leaves office I expect. Then have a quick competition and buy F-35s. Hopefully before the wings fall off their Hornets...

    Apparently the US legacy Hornets are a bit rougher than anticipated.

    Hopefully the Canadian birds can keep flying until the Government can decide, well something.

    Surely the CF-18 is less worn out than the USN's models?...
