In an Associated Press interview at the opening Monday of the Paris Air Show, a senior F-35 Air Force administrator, Brigadier General Select Todd Canterbury, said the daily displays of the new jet are to showcase its abilities and "reassure (allies) that we are committed to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation 100 percent and that we have got the capability to respond to any action necessary".
In an Associated Press interview at the opening of the Paris Air Show, where the F-35 made its acrobatic debut, Brigadier General Select Todd Canterbury said the jet's displays are to "showcase the capability to all of our European partners and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies" and "to reassure them that we are committed to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation 100 percent and that we have got the capability to respond to any action necessary".
U.S. President Donald Trump has called North Atlantic Treaty Organisation obsolete and excoriated European allies last month for not spending enough on their own defenses. A team of engineers, test pilots, medics and others experts are "digging into this problem 24 hours a day", to try to identify the cause, Canterbury said. We appreciate their continued confidence in the MAX family. The agreement, valued at approximately $4.74 billion at current list prices, is split evenly between 20 new orders for the 737 MAX 10 and conversions of 20 of the low-priced carrier's 737 MAX 8 airplanes of its current order to 737 MAX 10s.

With this commitment, valued at $7.4 billion at list prices, CDB Aviation will become one of the launch customers for the 737 MAX 10, the newest member of Boeing's 737 MAX family. The A380plus could carry 80 more passengers and fly slightly farther. But industry sources said Airbus would immediately hit back with a large order for the A321neo.
Boeing says that it has attracted 240 orders for the B737 Max 10 from more than ten customers, with orders being announced throughout the week.

"Adding the 737 MAX 10 gives our customers the most flexibility in the market, providing their fleets the range capability, fuel efficiency and unsurpassed reliability that the 737 MAX family is widely known for". "This additional order of Boeing's fastest-selling 737 MAXs and eight of its cutting-edge 787 Dreamliners to our growing fleet will play a key role in bolstering our global position and delivering the most advanced, in-demand aircraft to our expanding worldwide customer base".
