Flightglobal reports that a major partner in the GMAS team who won the JCA competition might leave the group.....

http://www.flightglobal.com/articles...-industry-team-faces-shake-up.html

Quote:
"A key member of the industry team that won the Joint Cargo Aircraft (JCA) contract a year ago appears to have dropped out, a move that would force a major shake-up of the original production system.

A team that included L-3 Communications, Alenia Aeronautica and Boeing was selected to deliver the Alenia C-27J for the US Army and US Air Force.

[.....]

However, Boeing has made conflicting comments. Last week, a Boeing spokesman told The Hill newspaper in Washington DC that the company had ceased negotiations with Alenia.

But Chris Chadwick, Boeing’s president of precision engagement and mobility systems, told reporters on Monday that negotiations remain ongoing.

Chadwick says 'we’re trying to close the business case' with Alenia regarding JCA.

Both Alenia and L-3 officials emphasized that Boeing’s departure will not affect the delivery schedule. The JCA contract calls for the first C-27J delivery to the army before October."



Would Boeing really opt out, and in that case, might we see Lockheed Martin returning to fill the void and reclaiming their stake?

It sound strange...

BTW I guess it may be interesting to see the link below where there is a picture of the first C-27J airframe that is supposed to flight to US by the end of July.

That may be the reason as quoted in the above article.....
