This blog is on vacation

Regular updates will return on March 12.

Until then, I invite you to view the growing list of comments about Northrop Grumman’s shocking victory for the KC-X contract.

Also, I’ll invite you to revisit some highly speculative thoughts I wrote a few months ago about the potential industrial base implications of a KC-30 victory.

Here’s a quick excerpt:

But it is because: The implications of the USAF decision, especially in the event of a victory for the Northrop Grumman/EADS KC-30, are enormous for the US industrial base.

We’re talking about nothing less than the revitalization of a competitive domestic civil aircraft industry for the first time since Boeing merged with McDonnell Douglas in 1997.
