|But what if the French and German delegates decide to delay certification |of a Russian or U.S. design until Airbus can finish their competing model? |What if the U.S. delegate delays their certification of an Airbus until |Douglas can finish their MD-whatever? Certainly this is a possibility, but retaliation in kind os probable. In the same way that the US congress works on politically motivated bill-killing, and still gets some things done, it seems that a highly technical board (as this one must be) would operate smoothly, despite some countries' industries' likelihood to _try_ to apply pressure to delay a competitor's certification. Besides, with multiple boards around the planet, we already have the situation where one board can prevent foreign competition's planes from being locally certified. -- Jay Vassos-Libove firstname.lastname@example.org Digital Equipment Corporation decwrl!alf.dec.com!libove Atlanta Customer Support Center Opinions?
