Just came across this in a news brief:


"The Gulf state of Qatar is in talks to buy into European aerospace firm EADS by purchasing half of German carmaker Daimler's shares up for sale, the German weekly Der Spiegel reported.

Members of the Qatari government met two weeks ago with German Economy Minister Philipp Roesler for initial talks, said the magazine in its edition to be published Monday.

Defence group EADS is the parent company of plane maker Airbus."

What, if any, would the implications for civil and commerical aviation be? I know this is not the first time that the Qatar state has been interested in buying into EADS, there is at least one thread on this topic from 2007 also. Will they be successful this time around?

is there anything the Qataris are not interested in or can't afford to buy?

I guess as far as the Germans go, is better the Qataris own some of it than the French get their hands on the rest....
