What a shame! I remember many moons ago being invited to take a few 'tests' their with a view to employment!
With the state of the armed forces, the country and the aviation industry this is more than sad news.

Quoting lhr380 (Reply 3): So what should they be doing? If there is no work why keep spending on a site that will loose them money?
Well that's the point: I suspect the reason why "there is no work" is probably because BAE system has not put the investment necessary to keep these sites competitive. BAE just don't show any interest in civil stuff, a very good example is what they did to what used to be their Airbus part (18%): almost no investments for decades, and eventually they got rid of it. I am quite happy Airbus UK is now EADS, and not BAE anymore...
