Flight International’s UK industry special

The UK’s aerospace industry comes under the spotlight in the 1-7 issue of Flight International, which features on its cover an extraordinary shot from crew survival specialist Martin-Baker, captured during its test activity for the Textron AirLand Scorpion ejection seat. As well as Martin-Baker, the feature package – entitled Best of British – includes profiles of Marshall Aerospace, Nasmyth and PPA, together with a look at the UK’s space policy and what happens to the country’s defence assets if Scotland votes to become independent later this year.

In news: why Boeing is introducing a panel assembly line to accelerate the 737 wing process, the continuing mysteries around MH370 and AirTanker to fuel Thomas Cook revival. We also have an analysis about plans to make the NH90 helicopter programme less complicated.
