After the Scandal @ Boeing with the tankers, the fast development of the F-35a/b/c, and the final checks and troubleshooting for the F/A 22 Raptor, what is your opinion on what will the USAF's 'fleet' will be? Will the B-52 program be relaunched for a replacement? Will there be another stealth bomber?...
I highly doubt we'll see another bomber program after the drawdown recommended for the bomber force in the last QDR and we'll more than likely see a re-engine program for the B-52s so that their service lives will be extended until at least the Twenties.
