Airbus should not even consider bringing in their A400M. That would be a dishonor to those who died testing that plane, and for overall safety of crews and those on the ground.

Bring it back when Airbus Seville has their manufacturing processes/procedures brought up to standard. Isn't part of an EASA certification process include production processes? If three of the FADEC controllers failed, and they were following some established manufacturing process the fourth should have failed too.

Tragic though the accident to the A400M was,it is inconceivable that Airbus will not bring it to the show.Progress in aviation has never been without risk,the professionals on board will have known this better than most.I expect Airbus to exhibit,but not necessarily fly, a full range of their products at their `home` event.Anything else would be a dishonour to the deceased.Did their efforts not matter?Hiding the plane away would suggest just that.

The CSeries will face strong competition from the Dassault Flamant. Nice to see oldies at airshows.

The Rafale would be a great choice for Canada as a replacement for their current CF-18s. Twin engines are a must for those long patrols over the North and the ocean. Who needs the stealth characteristics of the F-35 to bomb terrorists in developping countries?

I would recommend the new Saab Gripen for Canada. This aircraft is especially build for Nordic conditions and is also quite easy to maintain on remote landing strips like highways. No need for heated shelters to keep the fragile F-35 alive.

The French have always built the most beautiful war planes in the world. Russian warplanes always look meanest!
