EADS NA, Airbus no-show at EP-X Industry day

This is a surprise. Naval Air Systems Command hosts an industry day for the EP-X fleet. The Airbus A321 has been discussed as an alternative to the Boeing P-8B, a 737-based surveillance aircraft. But neither EADS North America nor Airbus appeared at the industry day on 20 November, according to this list of attendees.

Northrop Grumman, which has considered offering the A321, did show up. So did other obvious contenders for the prime contract: Boeing, Lockheed Martin, L-3 Integrated Systems and Raytheon.
