Rolls Tables Trent 900 Production For 1 year

Flight International is reporting today that Rolls Royce has suspended production of the Trent 900 engine that powers the Airbus A380 for at least one year starting immediately.

None of this can be good news at Goodrich, which is one of the largest component sources around for A380 parts, including landing gear, evacuation slides, and fuel management and distribution gear for the big Trent.

One of my clients said one time that things like this are like a slow acting bomb-the first things killed are those closest to the blast. Let us fervently hope that it is not so in this case.
