Two thoughts...

The A400 came out looking a lot better, and a decade sooner than I'd expected.

I'm *still* amazed the V/STOL variant of the F-35 flies, given the scary P/W of that 'Lift' gearbox.
Makes a helo's 'J**s Nut' seem under-worked...

Only the USN flies Super Hornets. (There have been calls for the USMC to get some, but they're all-in on the F-35.)
