I get that everyone wants Canada to get the P8. I was just pointing out limitations in putting all of the Capabilities in a 737ng or a A320neo.

Don’t mistake “will get the P8” for “wants to get the P8.”

Important people and families are mad Boeing so there will be no P-8. Full stop.

Can we quote you on that? Which ‘important people and families’ would be capable of refusing US direction, camouflaged as ‘continental defense concern’, to buy the P8?

I’ll add, not everyone is the LRP world or RCAF wants “to get P-8” although it’s the east, visible replacement.

I think I can say, in the fleet, a huge majority want and see a new for a replacement, and we’ll before the GoC does anything about it. I’ll say 99.99% want a replacement because there might be that 0.01% that don’t (aside from the Flt Engr trade).

Sadly I think our place as a respected member of the “VP community” globally will dwindle further and further. You can’t operate the way we are right now and into the next decade and still reasonably believe you’ll be viewed the same as, the RAAF is by Allies, for example.

Top tip - get the 4-caster ones that roll in all directions

That might be the first Prof Level 5 I’ve ever seen right there!!
