Time to buy Boeing stock

More on the woes of the EU's flagship Soviet-style industrial enterprise, Airbus (or, as some are now calling it, "Airbust"). Be sure to click on "comment thread" at the bottom too, for more details on the huge (and hugely misconceived) A380 passenger plane, such as:

"Airports that want to accommodate Airbus will have to widen and strengthen their runways and taxiways."

"The tails built by the Germans do not marry up to the fuselages built by the French" (who's running this operation, Monty Python?)

"The aluminum wiring is too bulky to fit"

Etc. See here for more links on Airbus.
