Aviation Week & Space Technology July 7, 2014

Volume 176 Number 23

This week, Aviation Week publishes two editions. The cover photo from Dassault features one of the company’s Rafale fighters in a heavyweight configuration that was tested this year. It carries six air-to-air missiles, six Sagem A2SM guided bombs and three 2,000-liter fuel tanks. A special report on European fighter upgrades begins on page 32. Elsewhere in both editions are an interview with Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson (page 28) and reports on electric aviation (page 18) and the next steps for the Boeing 747-8 (page 21). Our MRO Edition includes a report on parts-buying essentials—from demand forecasting to parts logistics and distribution. Its cover photo from AJW Aviation shows the firm’s state-of-the-art warehouse and logistics complex near London Gatwick Airport.
