ATR (Avions Transports Regionalle) aircraft are built by a consortium
of France's Aerospatiale and Italy's Alenia, each of which own 50% of
the enterprise.

The same Aerospatiale holds a 37.9% share of the Airbus Industrie
consortium.  (Daimler-Benz Aerospace Airbus also holds 37.9% while
British Aerospace holds 20% and Spain's CASA the remaining 4.2%.)
