    The African aviation industry has been preaching about regional co-operation for years: it could soon happen. <p>Kevin O'Toole/Johannesburg </p> <p>In the middle of August the African aviation community met in Johannesburg to discuss its future.

Some have not even managed that. </p> <p>The conclusion, too, was painfully familiar.
