Boeing vs. Airbus: The Winning Bird Might Be Too Big

Categories: News

You may have had your fill of the Boeing vs. Northrop Grumman/European Aeronautic Defence and Space (EADS) air force tanker brouhaha.

But I don't recall reading as many specifics of Boeing's protest as former RFT staffer Mike Seely offers in a blog post at our sister paper Seattle Weekly.

Seely spoke with a Boeing spokesman who argues that the jumbo size of the Airbus craft that won the $40 billion tanker sweepstakes will necessitate everything from bigger hangars to airstrips spaced widely enough apart to accommodate the planes.
