Fighter pilots shut down CF-18 engines more than 200 times since 1988
Government records show Canadian CF-18 pilots shut down one of their aircraft's two engines in midflight more than 200 times since 1988 because of safety concerns. The revelation highlights a key aspect of the debate over whether the single-engine F-35 stealth jet is not only the right aircraft for Canada, but also the safest — or whether the air force would be better off with another dual-engine jet.
