Fairchild Dornier AeroIndustries was late last week declining to comment on German media reports that it had filed for bankruptcy. The German arm of China's D'Long International Strategic Investment has been trying to revive the defunct Fairchild Dornier 728 regional jet since its Chinese parent bought the programme following Fairchild Dornier's 2002 insolvency. Press reports claim that D'Long is suffering serious financial difficulties and that the bankruptcy filing resulted from its refusal to grant additional credit to the German division.
