Re: Air Transat News and Discussion Thread - 2022

Re: Airbus / Qatar A350 dispute - Airbus filed defence and counter-claim

If I understand Zeke's comment, and I may be completely wrong about it, he means that because the mesh is embedded into the epoxy, then when that epoxy component of the composite epoxy/mesh outer layer breaks away, it would break both "over" and "under" the mesh. Is that it ? The...
