This question has always been on my mind ...

Why was the BAMC built at CWL?

In the future could it be a place where wings, fuselage etc could be built?

I would love to see Airbus take it over...

Has it?

I knew that the wings were being built there but I didnt know they had built a new hangar!

What is the runway like at Chester?

Must be fairly long to take off...

I would really like to see BA get rid of the BAMC at Cardiff and give it to Airbus!  Big thumbs up

LOL

Hmm, I thought that most of the components for the A380 were going to hauled to Toulouse & Hamburg via ship (which, I might add, have just been finished - in China).
I bet that that the Airbus Industries A300ST's are being put through its paces at the moment.

I thought this was a European Company not a French-Germanic company!

Maybe the UK & Spain should team up with Boeing and build an alliance! LOL Big grin

We do it in most other things...  Wink/being sarcastic

Joking aside, check the following out for info on Airbus

http://www.airbus.com/about/history.asp

As for why BA are in Cardiff... skilled workforce in South Wales, cheap land, good incentives etc..

As for why Airbus will never be there... it's a maintenance base, Airbus already have manufacturing plants elsewhere etc..

As for why Airbus final assembly is in France & Germany... because the UK never joined the programme earliy enough and was never a major partner - poor strategic planning by the then governments....



I don't like signatures...
