    Because they brought Gripen they dont need a ''big airforce'' to maintain?
    You know they dont have any real problem in south america anyway.

    I understand they don’t need big airforce but they sold these to French company that will refurbish them and see to French airforce....I assume they are in very good shape and they could have got a lot more money.

    These probably cost more to keep them flying.

    Ok, I know 'corruption' seems to be my favorite word these days, but it looks like there is 'Corruption' written all of this sale. It just does not make any sense unless there was some 'Hanky Panky' going on here.

    A few months ago a friend of mine saw 2014 BMW X5 5.0 with the 4.4 Liter Twin Turbo engine for sale at $9000.00. It has about 90,000 miles on it. The SUV looked great. After he had a mechanic run the diagnostic on it, the estimated repair came at over $10,000. It would be way more if the local BMW dealer does the work.

    Fighter jets require serious maintenance as they are mission critical. My point is cheap is not always cheap. The Brazilians were happy to get rid of it
