Rolls-Royce to Take Back A380 Engines from Airbus

Engine maker Rolls-Royce has asked Airbus to return some Airbus A380 engines from production lines so it can use them to replace faulty turbines on airplanes already in service, Airbus said.

Awkwards, no?

As if the prospect of having the TenaciouslySalaciousAttendants groping your nether regions alone wasn’t enough to discourage flying. **sigh**

Vis-à-vis “opt out”: Can you put a “Do Not Disturb” sign on your ass?

    The same folks who stopped the world with Lucas electronics (the Prince of Darkness), Austin Marinas and TR7’s also make jet engines. There’ll always be an England.

    Take it from a former owner of a Triumph GT6: Gary is right. There’ll always be an England because everybody else eventually gets tired of fixing their crappy products, and somebody’s got to do it.

    Rolls Royce makes a lot of there stuff here is the U.S. The old Allison plant in Indianapolis is a Rolls Royce plant now. They make the AC 1107C engines there. Of course those are for the V-22 and the Marine Corps may replace them because of the maintenance issues.

    Well, you could try the other side, but half the folks are missing the prerequisite hooks.

    I vote sandwich boards, just to be safe.
