  1. I really doubt if the A-400 will encroach very much on the C-130 market. The time that it has taken the A-400 to finally leave the ground and the many cost over runs, delays and customers backing out from orders, it is a thorn in EADS side. As far as innovation, a bigger threat would be from down south. Embraer is producing a C-130 replacement for the Brazilian Air Force, it is something outside Embraer's normal operations but with the success of their commuter aircraft I think they could do very well with this program. I was even contacted by a recruiter to head to Sao Paulo to work on the project, didn't get much info from them and it didn't pan out but would have been nice to see it from the ground up. I doubt they have the delays that EADS had with the A-400 as well. http://www.defenseindustrydaily.com/Embraer-Launches-KC-390-Tactical-Air-Transport-Program-05380/

  3. This is a portion of an email I received a week or so ago. Also got one from Boeing last month. I got laid off back in Feb, so had started a job search when these started popping up. Not sure if it's the same firm, but this email did come from someone with a .uk email address. I'm guessing these are headhunters for Boeing, they get paid when they produce a qualified applicant.
