New planes

It's your call

April 24, 1991

The Air Force has awarded a contract to a Lockheed team to build about 650 Stealth fighter planes for about $65 billion.

Proponents describe the planes as revolutionary tactical fighters for the 21st century. Congressional critics and others have questioned the need for the planes in the post-Cold War era. They say the planes could cost far more than an Air Force estimate that is already over $100 million a plane.

The Evening Sun wants to know whether you support the plan to build and purchase the fighters.
