Thank's for the link. I used to work there at "Eddy's Funny Farm" and was able to go inside both the SIL and the actual aircraft. I think Obama would be less than wise if he were to cancel this program.

Even as a tech demonstrator, the ABL is a wealth of tech advancements, getting a active laser platform out of it would be even better.
