Weeeeeeeeong!! Pew Pew! BOOM!!
Filling up all branches of the military with affirmative action hires wasn’t the best idea, huh?
As it turns out, when it comes to practical matters, you actually need competent people. We’ve been having disaster after disaster in recent years, such as when a Navy vessel crashed into a Filipino fishing boat.
And now, one of our state-of-the-art aircraft just crashed, for no clear reason.
A US Marine Corps F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter crashed on Friday in South Carolina just outside Marine Corps Air Station in Beaufort, several news outlets including ABC News reported, citing military officials.
The military aircraft, recognized as America’s most expensive weapon, went down 5 miles from the air station just before noon ET, The Herald reported, citing the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office and the Marine Corps. A spokesman for the sheriff’s office told the newspaper that the pilot ejected safely but was being evaluated for injuries.
Who are they getting to pilot these aircraft, little school girls?
More likely, the little school girls are instead put on maintenance duty.
And by little school girls, I of course mean brown people and fat women.
This beaner is apparently a maintenance crew chief for the Air Force.
No wonder all our crap crashes all the time. It’s a miracle it doesn’t happen more often.
The Marine Corps described the crash as a Class A mishap, a serious incident involving more than $2 million in damages or the destruction of the aircraft.
Military plane crash in Beaufort near Joe Allen Drive area. Appears to have crashed on a bluff/island owned by Clarendon Plantations. Not usually many people over there. Praying for the safety of all involved! pic.twitter.com/dM5a8v2lg1

Again, let me reiterate in case you think I was joking above:
Air Force maintenance crew. Almost all women.
Would you trust a woman to maintain your car? Repair your toaster?
Yet the Air Force seems to leave the maintenance of their $100 million dollar planes exclusively to women – presumably because none of them make the cut as pilots and they need to give them something to do.
On Thursday, a US Marine Corps F-35B achieved a major milestone in Afghanistan, making its combat debut against Taliban targets.
Good thing we had these expensive, high-tech planes when fighting against Afghan goat-herders, huh?
Once we finally get gundams, we might actually end up winning this war against the mighty Afghan forces.
While there have been accidents, fires, and incidents involving the F-35 in recent years — such as when an F-35B burst into flames two years ago — this marks the first F-35 crash, the Marine Corps told Business Insider.
The F-35 is apparently a shitty plane, too. I’m no expert, but I’ve heard from many that it’s considered inferior to its predecessor in various ways. It’s certainly widely considered crappier than Russia’s latest aircraft, at least in a dog-fight.
Basically, they put all their eggs in the “electronics” basket, making the plane’s capabilities dependent on complicated software programs. I sure hope no one will figure out how to mess with their precious computers, huh?
Moreover, they cost an unfathomable amount of money, even though they’re slow and have poor maneuverability. This is all fine when the enemy is a primitive third-world country. But what if those dastardly Russians can actually defeat the F-35’s lauded electronics and stealth? Then the US Air Force will be constituted of useless flying bricks.
There’s a very good chance that all these “stealth” tricks will become obsolete soon with the advent of satellites that can track them. China is currently working on such a system.
