Justin, the F-35 program was a poster child for mission creep.  If the requirements change, then cost overruns are the result.  Any fighter plane developed during peacetime will naturally see massive cost overruns from mission creep and changing specifications.  The development phase on this program lasted over 20 years, depending on how you measure it.  Consider the changes we have seen in the past 20 years.  Try to imagine creating a state-of-the-art fighter plane when the design phase spans that much time.
