Project Tempest

Today has seen the unveiling of "Project Tempest", a new sixth generation combat aircraft for the RAF, to be designed and built here in the UK. I have to confess that seeing the announcement I was immediately struck by two conflicting opinions. 

On the one hand delight, as I think this is something the UK is entirely capable of doing and offers a lot of promise. On the other hand, caution, as this is the MoD we're talking about, which means the phrase "everything that can go wrong, will go wrong" is in immediate effect.
