Oops - corrections to netletter nr 31 - It was reported that BA held the first fashion show aloft - David Walker adises us differently - 'Air Jamaica offered In-Flight fashion shows on every flight over three hours in 1974. The feature was Jamaican fashions and they were displayed by the 'Love Birds' of the airline. New fashion outfits were boarded on the flights approximately once per week. It was a grand idea during the long flights from Europe to Jamaica. Sure put the customers in the mood for some warmth and sunshine.' Dave Walker Chief Pilot Air Jamaica 1974-78 Alan Rust points out that the A340 for China is the first for China, not the first delivery of tbis aircraft to a customer. As a matter of interest, Air Canada also has the A340 in its fleet. -=o0o=- . 1.Canadian Aerospace Industry, series. submitted by Vesta Stevenson - Aerospace Industry has specialized capabilities for the design, research, development, production, marketing, repair and overhaul of aircraft, aero engines, aircraft and engine subsystems and components, space-related equipment, and air- and ground-based avionic systems and components. It is economically impractical for the Canadian industry to meet the diverse commercial and defence aerospace-product needs of the Canadian market. Through selective specialization, the industry has developed products in response mainly to export market demands; 70-80% of its sales are in export markets. Approximately 100 companies are engaged in significant manufacturing. The main centres of production are Montreal, Toronto and Winnipeg. Employment in 1986 was 45 000, sales $4.5 billion. History CANADAIR LTD, the principal aircraft manufacturing company, started in the 1920s as the Aircraft Division of Canadian Vickers Ltd in east Montreal. Canadair designed and manufactured a series of airplanes, starting with the Vedette, the first Canadian flying-boat design. The company was relocated at the Cartierville airport in the Montreal suburb of St Laurent during WWII and, under Canadian government ownership, was an important centre of military aircraft production for amphibious Canso aircraft. In 1947 the government sold Canadair to the US Electric Boat Co, only to repurchase the company in 1976 and then to resell it to BOMBARDIER in 1986. Canadair has become an important source of executive jet aircraft like the Challenger aircraft series. To be Cont'd. -=o0o=- .
