The German goverment has recently decided not buy more Euro Hawks except for the prototyp. Several reasons have led to the decision. But since SIGINT has become such an important factor will there be alternatives ? In a German aviation forum an interesting idea was posted:

It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong
