I don`t know if this was posted before:

I found it only in German online news.
http://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/0,1518,380427,00.html
http://www.netzeitung.de/wirtschaft/unternehmen/363449.html

Quote:
EADS, parent company of the European airplane manufacturer airbus, helps the competitor Boeing for its new model 787 "Dreamliner" with parts, so that the machine can get as light and thus economical as planned. As the "Financial Times Germany" reported, the Augsburger EADS plant will supply a large trunk construction unit from composite material for the new Boeing long-distance aircraft. "We have a preliminary agreement, but still no series contract", a speaker of the enterprise said to the news paper. The rear cover of the airplane cab, the pressure bulkhead, from Augsburg would be the first part, which Boeing will receive from EADS from Germany.

Well Spirit Aerostructures which was spun off from Boeing (formerly Boeing Wichita) maybe contracted out to build parts for Airbus aircraft. It's so funny how the world turns in teh aircraft manufacturing business.

Out of curiosity, what parts does Boeing manufacture for the A380?

Hawker de Havilland, Australian Boeing subsidiary, manufactures the A380 wingtip fences.

Me??? A Boeing partisan? I think you have me confused with someone else. If I have any bias between Airbus and Boeing it would be in favor of Airbus as the only airliner I've ever flown was an A319 (not in commercial service at the time). However, I make every effort to set aside prejudices and stay as objective as I can.

Yes. I participated in acceptance flight testing and delivery. During the delivery flight I was able to take the controls for a while. Big grin

Globalization....
Its only a matter of time before the two companies, shy of merging, collaborate on an all new aircraft design, then share assembly duties. The engine manufacturers are at it already: CFM, IAE, Engine Alliance; and there is rampant collaboration in the defense industry as well... Why not the aircraft themselves? A and B each have some strong suits and expertise where they can help each other out, making an overall better product for their customers.

For which airline ? And if it was the only airliner you´ve flown, how did you get to HAM or XFW ?
Or do you mean by "flying" that you take the controls ?

On numerous threads, I've been very pessimistic about seeing a new SST for perhaps 20 years, if ever.
Were it to happen though, in the foreseeable future, this would be the point where you saw extensive, in-depth, acting as partners cooperation between Boeing and Airbus, with major Japanese elements too, (which is why that rather large, impressively launched 1/10 model was launched in Oz the other day).

I flew to HAM on a scheduled flight. Airbus sent a driver to pick me up (who spoke even less English than I speak German, which made conversation very difficult). Yes, by flying I meant that I took the controls (only on the delivery flight, not during the test flights). Though I was in the cockpit for most of the test flights and did help figure out some of the problems the aircraft was having, I don't think I would have taken the controls even if offered. At some points there were 7 of us in the cockpit.  crowded  It was one of the most memorable five day periods of my life. And Airbus was very, very good to me during the whole affair. I was very positively impressed.
