It's the week of the Dubai airshow, so work's announcing lots of news about various bits and bobs. And you'll remember my posting last week about Boeing's change of tack on the Big Jumbo front
Well, there's news on the BBC from our former boss, and now Airbus boss, Noel Forgeard, and his views on Boeing's about turn.
True, the 747 was originally designed as a freighter, and so an extended version would work well in that market. But don't mention anything about it's development and where the money came from for that. There's enough arguement about state aid for the A380 and A350 without pointing out the military background of the Jumbo.
