While the US military was busy spending hundreds of billions of dollars developing the barely flyable F-35, they seem to have neglected their fleet of aging aircraft and overworked maintenance crews. According to a recent investigation from Fox News, more than half of the B-1 bombers at one air base can’t fly, and other squadrons are in desperate need of parts. Some maintenance crews have even been forced to scavenge for parts from aircraft housed in museums. After years of constant deployments coupled with recent budget cuts, America’s air power is crumbling.
