Feedback: EA-18 may nail our coffin

This just what the Navy needs (News-Times, May 22), another short ranged aircraft that puts the aircraft carrier at risk!

The FA18 series aircraft have less range than the old F4’s. It is nothing but another expensive stop gap tinker toy! The Navy purchasing the EA18 will probably put the nail in the closure of Whidbey!
