So what did we learn..?

In over a year they have picked up just 4 orders...(they said at FF they had 154...158 on the books now)
They need roughly 275 to break even....(needed 95+/- more at FF to break even)

..and this month they announced yet another delay...

A good show. Frankly, it's amazing that they are able to get anything built at all, given the anti-development constituancies they have to satisfy in order to move forward. Move the friggin' church already.

That said, it was interesting to see how the anti-development constituancy in Hamburg focused on the wake turbulence issue.

And thank goodness the Red Brigades are long gone, if A is going to do these wild overland convoys. What a security nightmare.

Quoting Bobster2 (Reply 3):
It should be on The History Channel instead.

Ouch. This is shameless war-mongering, vicious name-calling, and frankly a waste of bandwidth. I like it. Keep it up!
