"Mega stakes as defense companies face deadline on Air Force trainer bid" by Travis J. Tritten


Defense analsyt Byron Callan was quoted in Travis J. Tritten's Washington Examiner article "Mega stakes as defense companies face deadline on Air Force trainer bid". 

Tritten writes: 

Byron Callan, an analyst with Capital Alpha Partners, said Boeing might be able to take advantage of newer manufacturing processes and technologies to gain the upper hand with the Air Force. 

"In my personal view, I think there's some attributes to the Boeing-Saab entrant that would make it more positive, a more likely winner than the Lockheed plane," Callan said. "Sometimes, a newer design might do better than an airplane that is already 10 years old from conception."
