Quotes

Speaking after BAE reported a 10pc drop in first-half revenues to £7.6bn and operating profits down 8.4pc at £689m, Mr King said: "After events that have recently happened to commercial airliners [I can see] a lot more of our technology being used."
He said: "We are not approaching the end of the cycle or a precipice. The commercial aircraft market is still very strong - certain regional weak spots notwithstanding, but we can deal with that."
"We are not approaching the end of the cycle or a precipice" Enders said. "The commercial aircraft market is still very strong - certain regional weak spots notwithstanding, but we can deal with that"
"Western firms know that India is one of the biggest buyers of military equipment. They launch a very aggressive campaign to sell their wares. In this respect, they are far ahead of Russian manufacturers who have not yet learned to put into practice modern tactics for pushing their goods. The French are actively working with Indian officials, politicians, trying to impress the officials of the Ministry of Defence with the advantages of their products . So India opted for Rafale not because they are the best fighters, but because the French are very eager to sell them to us. "
