Sir Nicholas Winton has died at age 106. His death comes on the 76th anniversary of his departure from Prague on a train that carried many of the Jewish children whose lives he saved. That train in 1939 carried 241 out of the 669 total children who evaded the Nazi camps where their families were taken to die.

The Army spent more than $1 trillion on the F-35 airplane program, a next-gen fighter that should outclass the F-16 in every way. The stealthy new flagship plane will be used by the U.S. Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps, as well as the militaries of more than a dozen U.S. allies in the future, replacing the F-16. But don’t expect it to perform better than the F-16 that the U.S. Air Force first acquired in the late 1970s, even though it should be superior to the F-16 in every conceivable way. More →
