5 aerospace companies battle to replace Canada's CF-18s
from Toronto Star
Five aerospace companies are offering their fighter jets as potential replacement for Canada's fleet of aging CF-18s, including Lockheed Martin's F-35, the very jet Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has pledged not to buy. The federal government had set a recent deadline for potential suppliers to respond to a detailed questionnaire outlining the costs and capabilities of their jets, as well as benefits that would flow to Canadian companies. The defence department said Saturday that five companies responded: Boeing Company, Dassault Aviation, Eurofighter, Lockheed Martin and Saab Group.
