Aviation Week & Space Technology July 21, 2014
Vol. 76 Issue 25
This week, Aviation Week publishes two editions. On the far left cover is an Airbus concept for the A330neo, the reengined and upgraded widebody the airframer announced at the Farnborough air show (page 22). The dog that did not bark at Farnborough was the F-35 fighter (page 27). Also in both editions are articles on Japan’s fighter choices (page 32) and the resurgence of space in the U.K. (page 30). On the cover of our Defense Technology Edition is a BAE Systems photo of its Taranis unmanned combat air vehicle demonstrator flying over its classified Woomera flight-test site in Australia. Taranis has completed its second series of flights, in stealth configuration with the nose boom and conventional antennas removed, the company announced at Farnborough (page 29).
