Another Good Quote From Farnborough

RSS

My colleague Amy Butler recently posted some quotes from Farnborough 2012. Another 11 quotes will be featured in Aviation Week & Space Technology's Farnborough Wrap-Up report. I'll give you a sneak peak at one of my favorites:

"It was designed a bit like Russian roulette -- except they put a bullet in every chamber." --Raytheon CEO Bill Swanson on "sequestration," the across-the-board budget cuts that will occur if the U.S. Congress cannot agree on a new deficit reduction package.

See the quotes, Editor-in-Chief Tony Velocci's take on the show, and a report from congressional editor Jen DiMascio on how U.S. states are competing with each other for aerospace business in the July 23 edition of the magazine, available July 20 in our digital edition via Zinio or on the Aviation Week Intelligence Network.
