High cost of Navy jets

I think there must have been a typo in The Bee’s April 15 article on the 100 new F-35 C jets coming to Lemoore Naval Air Station. The story said they cost $129 million apiece! Surely that can’t be right! No sane society with one in five kids growing up in poverty could spent more than a million dollars for one airplane!
