Arrow ex-Secretary of the Air Force says get rid of AWACs fleet, use money saved for more F22s, F-35s

Interesting idea. It may well be true that AWACs is no longer viable, and is just a big flying target against a sophisticated opponent. I believe it still has great value in places like Afghanistan, and against opponents like Iran or North Korea.
