Opinion: Solving two aero dilemmas

A Bloomberg news columnist in Paris has an interesting way to resolve two problems faced by the aerospace industry. Airbus should drop its troubled A400 troop transport so European nations can buy proven transports from the United States. And in return, the United States should buy the already flying Airbus A330 aerial tanker. It would help aerospace companies on both continents, who in the future will face challenges from China’s and India’s aerospace industries. (Source: Bloomberg, New York Times, 07/07/09)
