  • Endangered species: Our Top 10 rare military aircraft


    ​Ahead of the publication of our annual World Air Forces directory, our Top 10 feature looks at some of the rarest aircraft still to be found in active military service around the globe. The selection draws on just some of the data contained within our global fleet listing, which details the almost 52,000 combat, special mission, tanker and transport aircraft, combat helicopters and training types currently in use across 160 nations. To make it more of a challenge, we have intentionally excluded nationally developed aircraft or type variants (for example the Denel Rooivalk attack helicopter) which have not been exported for use in other countries.

  • ANALYSIS: How Selex adds value under the skin

    News | 10 Nov 2014 15:59 | Dominic Perry

    ​Of the cluster of aerospace and defence assembly plants clustered around Milan, Selex ES's facility at Nerviano is perhaps the hardest to quantify. For example, Alenia Aermacchi's factory at Venegono Superiore makes jet trainers and the Vergiate plant of AgustaWestland churns out helicopters - both highly visible, tangible end products. The Selex site, on the other hand, makes a huge number of components that are invariably tucked away underneath the skin of the aircraft - radars, mission systems and sensors, and so on. That those systems are vital is not in dispute, however they tend to be overshadowed by the platform they are installed on.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-How-Selex-adds-value-under-the-skin-405501/
