    I'm not sure if that question is targeted at me or not. Are you talking about the UK deal linked above or about CHC.

    If it is the latter, I don't know, you would have to ask someone familiar with...

    Perhaps he should stay retired.

    Without getting into detail. Delays to date have nothing to do with the airframe. The ISR suite is extensive.

    Again, as I alluded to in my other post in this forum. The delays and expected delivery timelines are no secret. It's common knowledge.
