What comes next ? Airbus buying back its client's orders?

8b€ (10b$) and not a single head rolling down the gutter...

French MoD lately was screaming after the Eu industry lack of orders but what is the urgence when there is ample airbags to soften the fall from even the most stupid mishap?

(feeling nauseous)

Around time of my birthday in Sept last year I popped to RAF Mildenhall so here are my photos of Ejercitio del Aire A400M laughinfly helping out Aviano based 31st FW by moving their kit from UK deployment at RAF Lakenheath back to Aviano.

cheers
