I caught a very brief news flash on the BBC World Service this morning that
mentioned a bankruptcy at Fokker Aircraft of the Netherlands.  This was a
surprise to me because I had noticed a dramatic rise in orders for Fokker
aircraft over the last few months.  I had also read about Daimler Benz' recent
pledges of support for its ailing subsidiary.  Does anyone know the real story?
What's going on?
