COULDN'T THEY JUST USE MORE GLUE?:

A380 facing more delays, paring back of deliveries (Andrea Rothman, 10/02/06, Bloomberg News)

Airbus will scale back deliveries of the A380 superjumbo for a third time and reduce as much as 2 billion euros ($2.5 billion) in costs by cutting jobs and shifting production, three people with knowledge of the plans said.

The Boeing rival, based in Toulouse, France, probably can deliver just four A380s next year, less than half predicted in June, because of delays in installing wiring, said the people, who asked not to be identified before an announcement.


That's important because the wiring holds the wings on.

Real men use duct tape. "If it ain't broke, you're not tryin'"

"That's important because the wiring holds the wings on."

Or not, as the case may be. :-)

OJ was right about that headline earlier this year or last "How bout the 3rd of never".
