This week's issue of Flight International focuses in its feature section on next-generation bombers. Dave Majumdar looks at the US Air Force's efforts to develop a new stealth long-range bomber amid worries that the programme may be under threat from defence budget cuts. Vladimir Karnozov, meanwhile, reports from Moscow on Russia's progress on its own long-range strike aircraft, the PAK-DA.
In the news section, further criticism of Gulfstream's G650 flight-test programme from US safety inspectors and what SpaceX plans now after its first-ever flight by a private contractor to the International Space Station. Plus: the fallout from the failed EADS/BAE Systems merger move, and what Lufthansa is doing to eliminate incidents involving fumes on the flightdeck.
