    Agreed. But it would probably be cheaper to just build new airframes - with some improvements - than go through with developing a entirely new aircraft. Assuming the tooling and such still existing since Fairchild no longer does.

    I do have a soft spot for the aircraft since the YA10 prototype was build and flown out of Republic's Farmingdale NY facility - which I live a couple of miles from and, when I owned it, kept my plane tied down at the Republic airport.

    That would give the Air Force more time to play golf. I think they have enough already.

    The point is that he said that giving Congress information on the A 10 was tantamount to treason.
