Canada to buy used RAAF F18s

Last time Australia sold some used jets to another country it was the A4s to NZ in the 1980's and we ended up hiring them back complete with aircrew to assist the RAN with AAW training. Perhaps this is a cunning ploy by the RCAF to get a break down under when it becomes a bit wintery at home.

Used F-18s

Using the term "cunning ploy" in reference to the Liberal government would be an oxymoron with emphasis on moron.

The RCAF are equally to blame for this debacle in their insistence on entering into a single source contract to purchase the F-35.

Lot's of stupid going around Canada these days.

Glad I'm retired.
