ahhhhhhhhhhhh, the fleecing of america. I guess the Marines can't take the Air Force's word that it can operate at high altitude. However, its a wonder to see the thing fly.

It's the plane no one in the military wanted, but the DOD insists on buying them. They've been trying to keep them from crashing for many, many years.
