F/A-22 Raptor(click to enlarge) AFA reports on Gordon England’s upcoming new air power review that seems designed to provide the analysis needed to make further cuts in the F/A-22 and F-35 programs. England, who awaits confirmation to be deputy secretary of defense, hired Whitney, Bradley & Brown, the same consultants he employed when he was Navy Secretary to justify the reduction of the Navy’s goals for acquiring F-35C’s. That review lowered the Navy’s planned inventory of Joint Strike Fighters by 400.
