Default A-10 orders

How does one forget to order one third of all A-10's replacement wings? Especially hurtful as the F-35, its replacement is grounded AGAIN. This time it's mimicking the F-18's Oxygen problem. Pilots aren't getting oxygen while yankin and bankin.

Who ever dropped the ball on ordering replacement parts needs to be retired, no excuse when the country's security is at stake.

Hoping on a pipe dream before it's time. It's like wind and solar, both are great ideas and must be pursued, but we sure the heck don't need to stop using coal and oil until these new sources start to supply a large percentage of our overall energy consumption. I have solar on my house and it's it's great to have super low power bills (when the weather is nice), but I still need the electric company. I saw hundreds of the large wind turbines in OK and TX recently and I'm sure they generate a lot of energy, but they are there yet!
