FlyArmy, you're doing the math wrong. It's 30,000-37,000 hrs per year of flying with all the operating locations, not for 10 years. And if you actually look at the draft solicitation its gets close to 40,000-45,000 hrs per year as your ramp up all the operating locations. Even at 37,000 hrs flown per year, that's around $20,200 per flight hour. And that's supersonic jets with modern radars, HOBs CATMs, HMD's, Datalink...etc. There's no way the USAF could ever dream about getting close to that price. Check out fedbizops, look up "CAF ADAIR" and read the solicitation. Much more involved than what is being posted on this board.
