USAF displays sanity on Raptor

Words mean things. Even simple words.

Subscription required, but in a 12 DEC speech to the U.S. Air National Guard senior leadership conference in Baltimore, USAF COS General Moseley announce the marketing BS title F/A-22A will now just be the F-22A.

Thank goodness. I have been scolded for stating that calling an airplane (Navy started it) an F/A is just a crass marketing ploy - one not worthy of a warfighter. Stinks of snake oil. Thanks General, you proved me right. A 4-star that decides he doesn't need to sell BS. Bravo Zulu!

Nay, nay, nay, nay, nay!!!
