Re: The white heat of the technological revolution
TSR-2 is an example of not being able to pick the best time to cancel. Production of airframes nearly under way, most of the hard work done but little to show for it.
Compounded by the "cheaper" replacement programme not being cheaper. The F-111K, cancelled when the development aircraft were under production at General Dynamics because of the fall of Sterling against US dollar, together with changes in the East of Suez policy.
