Not about airliners, but anyway

But anyway, here it is. The US Defence Dept has bought a planeload of jets from a consortium that includes both US and Euro planemakers. Big deal? Well apparently it's caused a stink: they should've bought the all-American Boeing plane. Yeah, right. As this B-NET blogger points out, Boeing ain't so pure 100% U S of A as you'd imagine, not when it sub-contracts work all over the globe... (mind you, it's still a US corporation, not a consortium). Gets my vote as non-issue of the week.

These posts represent my opinions only and may have little or no association with the "facts" as you or others see them. Look elsewhere, think, make up your own mind. If I quote someone else I attribute. If I link to a web site it's because I have visited it myself and wish to refer to it, however that linking doesn't denote, imply or suggest any ownership, agreement with or control over that content. If an advertisement appears it's because I affiliate with Google, Amazon and others similar in nature and usually means nothing more than that... the Internet is a wild and untamed place folks, so please tread warily.
