At Farnborough, Brexit Fears Dampen F-35's UK Debut

At Farnborough, Brexit Fears Dampen F-35's UK Debut // Marcus Weisgerber
LONDON — The F-35 Lightning II feel-good tour has collided with the uncertainty left by Great Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.

While the program’s four biggest contractors celebrated the jet’s long-awaited debut at this week’s Royal International Air Tattoo and next week’s Farnborough Air Show, executives couldn’t help but wonder what a Brexit would mean for their bottom lines.

“I think much of this lies ahead of us as to actually what the impact will be,” Jeff Babione, executive vice president and general manager of the F-35 program for Lockheed Martin, said Thursday at RIAT, an all-military air show that precedes the defense-and-commercial Farnborough.


Raytheon CEO Sees Growth in Bomb, Missile Defense Market // Marcus Weisgerber
FARNBOROUGH, England — The American-led airstrike campaign against the Islamic State group and the global demand for missile defenses have Raytheon positioned for solid growth in 2016, the firm’s top executive said.

Raytheon is projecting a revenue increase of 3 to 5 percent, or as much as a $1.1 billion, from its $23.3 billion in sales last year, Thomas Kennedy, the company’s chairman and chief executive, said in an interview Monday at the Farnborough Air Show.

“A large part of that is the missile growth [but] it’s across all of our businesses,” Kennedy said. “All of our businesses are growing.”


Rest Assured, UK Remains Committed to NATO // Kim Darroch
In 2014, with Russian aggression threatening the stability of Europe, the UK hosted the NATO Summit in Wales at a crucial point in the history of the NATO alliance. This week in Warsaw, we will continue our commitment to collective defense and cooperative security, with NATO at the heart of our defense policy.

When we hosted the Wales Summit in 2014, we set in motion the most significant strengthening of collective defense in a decade, as well as new initiatives to tackle modern security threats. Since Wales, the NATO Response Force has tripled in size. NATO has introduced the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force, six new NATO units in the East and a broad range of assurance measures for Eastern Allies. The UK has been at the heart of this effort, with British Typhoons flying over the Baltics and British troops training alongside their Baltic counterparts.

At Warsaw, NATO will enter its next phase. The UK will lead one of four battalions deployed in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland to counter Russian aggression and reassure allies.
