Airbus Military Plane faulty

Apparently Airbus' military plane, the Atlas A400m failed the German ARMY MFK. The Krauts got their panties in a bunch and said: "Zis is nicht good!" With the plane having 161 defects, 8 of which apparently are considered severe defects (http://www.blick.ch/news/wirtschaft/...id3444232.html). Airbus kindly asked the head of the army segment of Airbus to step down....or he offered to step down, either way, there is a new vacancy at airbus at the moment. (http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/...0150129)...all in all, what have we learned from all this?
They should have gone for a Globemaster in the first place.


LIB over and out.

Only 161 is excellent. And it will help Mrs Merkel to give a kick in the ass of Mr Hollande who she detests but also will strengthen the German demands about a heavier role of Germany in Quality controls at Airbus






a n d ... you possibly mean the Douglas C-124 Globemaster here
