Canada buys retired (junked) Tornadoes from Britain on the cheap and rewings them with F-18 parts for supposed bargain basement price aircraft that costs a bundle in engineering work to get it to work!

Oh, sure, it's funny now. But how can we be absolutely sure that it won't actually happen  :o

Like the purchase of the old Aussie F-18's, it's costing more to upgrade them to current RCAF standard than the cost to buy them.
