Until we know that level of comparison, these reports are pretty much just scaremongering without anything to show this is anything different from normal.
The marine declared IOC 4 years ago and Elgin afb began receiving its jets 8 years ago, with over 350 a/c delivered worldwide its not like it was just delivered last year.
Again I ask. Do we have comparisons to the availability rates of other planes from the same timeframe? There's a lot of things that have been very beneficial from this method of approach.
