Caption Contest #39 Winner - Fiscal Responsibility?

 It was a real barn-burner of a competition in the poll for the caption winner, but the gem above from 'Tailgear' jumped out in front on the second day of voting and never looked back. It was actually a 3-way tie for second place, but only the winner will snag a bacon sandwich at Oshkosh 2011! Congrats to Tailgear for the win.

 I was unable to find details on this slick little non-flying F-35 caricature other than it seems to be somewhere in Europe and it's obviously very well done. Unfortunately, this caption is a reminder of the troubled nature of the F-35 project. I was really hoping we'd see this one come in on time and maybe even under budget. I know a project like this has to be insanely complicated, but at this time in our history, we desperately needed to get it done right.

 I think we need Scaled Composites (or a similar mindset company) to get in on designing and building fighter aircraft... you know, before it's too late.

I saw something like this being sold as a ultralight kit with a ducted fan.
