Not the first time tape has brought down a plane. And unfortunately probably not the last.

My biggest problem with low number of expensive fighters is this kind of attrition. I know it’s an accident but a piece of tape brought down what is hailed as the best fighter aircraft in existence. And the number of these marvels is now less with no replacements.
Fight to fly.  Fly to fight.  Fight to win.
