Airbus Orders Machinery

Tue Dec 20, 2005 1:52 am

Airbus has placed a multi million dollar order for water jet cutting equipment from Flow International for use in its A350 composite wing operation in Britain.

An interesting insight and a most informative website. I believe Flow International is headquartered in Washington state.

They're really serious about this, folks. The A350 is not vaporware.

I believe their headquarters is in Renton Washington. So does this means that the A350 will now get some Washington State subsidies?  Smile  stirthepot

I think we all came to the conclusion that they were serious about the A350 at least 6 or 7 months ago.
