So the 380 tearing its wingtip off wasn’t so bad afterall.

At least Airbus does not have some agency telling them where they can and cannot build factories.

Airbus does this every year at Farnborough and Paris (alternating years.)

They save up order announcemens for the air shows, while Boeing simply announces sales as they happen.

Not a big deal.

At least Boeing is not facing this sort of embarrassment.

Oooops! Airbus A380 Wing Hits Building at Paris Air Show

Airbus flew a double-decker Airbus A380 to the 2011 Paris Airshow to put on display and to hopefully attract additional customers. However, while taxiing, the world’s largest airliner’s wing clipped a building ripping off the right winglet and putting the aircraft out of service and unable to fly.

“If it ain’t Boeing I ain’t going.” Hell, I ain’t going anyway. TSA sucks.

No kidding. 200 new aircraft that are NOT going to be built by union employees of Boeing.

Bet they are really happy with the union leadership and the NLRB.

Are the unions here going to go to Intenational Court to sue Airbus?

I’m sure the machinists union is overjoyed! It’s a good thing they’re wasting Boeings’ time and money complaining about the new manufacturing facility in North Charleston, SC.

Interestingly, the BIG winner in all this is Pratt & Whitney, of all things! Pratt & Whitney scored a large number of orders for the A320neo with PW1100G geared turbofan engine, and that means Pratt & Whitney will do final assembly of this engine here in the USA, using parts sourced from American, German and Japanese suppliers. I expect Boeing within the next year show a new "clean sheet" design single aisle airliner that will replace the 737-700 to 737-900 models, also powered by this innovative engine.
