Richard Aboulafia, The DEW Line's favorite logorrheic aerospace analyst for the Teal Group, gave The Los Angeles Times on March 3 an interesting quote about the future of the approaching-death's-door-again C-17 production line.
Says the Times story:
But the program is likely to get another reprieve, much as it did last fall, because of strong congressional support, said Richard Aboulafia, an analyst with Teal Group, an aerospace research firm.
"Congress might have to increase here and there, but it can be done," he said. "There is a very strong chance that there will be another dozen added this year."
