BAE Systems to cut 3,000 jobs - Telegraph
Do we have any aircraft building capacity left?
We'd be richer than Switzerland if we could export political correctness.
BAES? Ask someone who knows about the saga of Airbus. Suffice it to say, the BAES (NOT "British Aerospace" any more - certainly not mainly British any more) decisions on this have led to major problems for any hope of a serious aircraft industry in the UK in future. But it was the best decision for their shareholders, so they had to make it.
Yes, even the doom-and-gloom merchants at the telegraph think so; Boeing 787 Dreamliner, a boost for the UK? - Telegraph
Add in EADS and a whole host of other companies (Marshalls, Smiths, etc) and we do have a very healthy aerospace industry, same as we have healthy automotive and automation industries.
hopefully bae will leave these shores and let us buy kit that works for a decent price. westland too.
Bombardier Aerospace/Shorts... 3rd biggest aircraft company in the world.... I believe they built the Sentinel R1
Not while both companies employ washed out civil servants and ex crab officers who were taken on with no gap in leaving the RAF and joining BAe after the personal intervention of Blair( how much in the Swiss account for that,Tone?).
Crap kit overpriced and late.That's BAe for you.Corrupt as well,as is Blair.
Please God, let Wasteland go to helicopter heaven
