Lockheed/Boeing are not the winners, will they be the whiners?
« on: October 29, 2015, 02:12:58 AM »
Well, Northrop Grumman won the LRS-B (Low Range Slow Bomber) competition. So will Lockheed-Boeing protest? (Business as usual?)
The development contract covers 21 initial aircraft out of a planned buy of 80. Any bets on wether the 21 aircraft will be the only ones built? This new plane is supposed to replace the B-52, and the B-1B.
I say Good Luck NG.
I hope they pull it off ahead of schedule and under budget
I also hope I can run a triathlon on my hundredth birthday. ;)

It may be Business as Usual.
Boeing may whine.
Boeing will "rigorously debate whether to protest", according to one Boeing Bigwig. A decision is expected within 2 weeks. Would the Lockheed part of the marriage have to sign off on the possible protest?
Deja vu, anyone?

Well, Boeing and Lockheed have decided to protest, and this, my friends, is why America is in decline--The prostitution to corporate profits.
Do any of you readers who have looked at this topic have an opinion????? Or are you just voyeurs?
C'mon, reply...

Yup, I saw the headlines, it's obviously normal for them.

I don't think it will be an aircraft that will interest me, even with NG building it. We'll see.

I have no interest for now, I guess until prototype or preproduction is unveiled.
