    The Snowbirds are great ambassadors. Every major air force has a team like this. Better to spend the money on planes than a gun registry.

    $755M is a lot of money to be spending on a demonstration flight team that doesn't even use fighters.

    The fiscal conservative in me says: No, this is not a good idea.

    Cost doesn't show the revenue generated through performance or show the valuable seat time for the pilots. It's a good move.
