Farewell, Flying Monster

One of the biggest airborne white elephants in recent memory has made its final flight. I've followed the program on and off for at least the past ten years, and while impressive looking it never seemed to actually go anywhere. The Wikipedia entry states it did actually shoot down two missiles in testing. I guess it was valuable in a "how NOT to do something" way, but per usual it cost way too much in the process.
