    Lockheed Martin may top Boeing in race to supply Canada jets -experts

    OTTAWA, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 13 (Reuters) - Canada's decision to make it harder for Boeing Co (NYSE: BA - news) to win a major jet order hands rival plane maker Lockheed Martin Corp an advantage in capturing the contract, defense experts said on Wednesday. Ottawa on Tuesday scrapped plans to buy 18 Boeing Super Hornets and made clear the company would not win a contract for 88 jets unless it dropped a trade challenge against Canadian planemaker Bombardier Inc (Toronto: BBD-A.TO - news) .

    Lockheed Martin now seen with edge in race to supply Canada jets

    OTTAWA, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 13 (Reuters) - Canada's decision to make it harder for Boeing Co (NYSE: BA - news) to win a major jet order hands rival plane maker Lockheed Martin Corp an advantage in capturing the contract, defense experts said on Wednesday. Trudeau's government on Tuesday scrapped plans to buy 18 Boeing Super Hornets and made clear the company would not win a contract for 88 jets unless it dropped a trade challenge against Canadian planemaker Bombardier Inc (Toronto: BBD-A.TO - news) . Last week Boeing issued a statement making clear it would not back down in its fight against Bombardier, which it accuses of trying to dump airliners on the U.S. market.

    Germany favours Eurofighter as it seeks to replace Tornado

    BERLIN, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 11 (Reuters) - The German Defence Ministry said on Monday that the European fighter jet was the leading candidate to replace its Tornado jets, which it wants to start phasing out in 2025. The ministry's position appears to contradict that of the German air force, whose chief indicated last month that he preferred Lockheed Martin (Swiss: LMT.SW - news) 's F-35, which meets the military's requirements of stealth and long-distance operational capabilities. "The indicated view of the inspector of the air force that the F-35 Lightning II is an especially suitable successor to the Tornado system is not the position of the federal government," Deputy Defence Minister Ralf Brauksiepe wrote in the letter.

    British Airways clears new pension scheme for April take-off
