n F-22: End the buy at 187 aircraft.
n F-35: Accelerate the buy in 2010 to increase the number of test assets available; in the end there will be about a dozen fewer aircraft.
n Air Force Fighters: Retire 250 fighters in Fiscal 2010 (Air Force request).
n Combat Search and Rescue Helicopter: Terminated.
n New Tanker: The KC-X program will go forward; request for bids expected this summer; Gates is still adamant on not having a split buy.
n Transformational Satellite: Terminated; instead will purchase two additional Advanced Extremely High Frequency communications satellites.
n Airborne Laser: Terminate the second aircraft, relegate the existing asset to research only.
n C-17: End the line; the 205 now in service or on order are sufficient.
n 2018 Bomber: Postponed.
