      That is one of the ugliest looking things in all of aviation history.
      It is a good thing they put it out of its misery while it was still small.

          The final variant of the X-32 would likely have looked much better than the monstrosity Boeing created for the prototype:

            Man imagine how much more the JSF would be hated if the F-32 had won instead of the F-35


            You can say a lot about the F-35, but it sure is prettier than the F-32.

              That x-32 meme is outstanding lol

                You really can't polish a turd. I work at the plant where the composite structures for that were made (as well as b-2 & f22) and even tho the x-32 was way before my time here, people who were around at the time said there were a lot of difficulties trying to fabricate what monstrosity did get out

                  Those are nice photoshops, but thats all... Also it looks extra stealthy with all those external stores...

                    Boeing has never had much when it came to fighters. It's basis is primarily commercial aircraft builder.

                      Perhaps not, but it knows a thing or two about making bombers and composite structures. As i mentioned, b-2& f-22 both came out of my plant, as well as a plan to rewing the a-6s till that got canceled

                        That is correct, and it would have been great if it had of worked but it was a technology in its infancy at the time.

                        This USED to be true but during the JSF tender Boeing absorbed McDonnell Douglas thereby becoming one of the most experienced manufacturers of combat aircraft. To this day it manufactures the F-15 and F-18.

                                    and I can read the letters (well, could also just be WIP)
                                    that's a nice degree of "wear" imho.

                                          maybe it is the word "Licensed" in "Licensed Third Party Projects"? Just a guess.
