How much will new U.S. stealth bomber cost? Nobody knows. The Air Force claims it can build 100 for no more than $564 million each. But even if that were true, the price tag does not include the development costs, estimated to exceed $20 billion.The projected costs are also in 2010 dollars — not the actual amount taxpayers must fork over in 2017. Total costs of the F-35 fighter are now expected to exceed $1.3 trillion — roughly $400 billion each to buy the planes, another $900 billionReuters
