  • UK : 15th on March 17th (68% of order delivered)
  • France: 11th on January 3rd (22% of order delivered)
  • Germany: 8th on January 31st (15% of order delivered)
  • Turkey: 4th on April 7th (40% of order delivered)
  • Malaysia: 4th on March 12th (order completely delivered)
  • Spain: 1st on December 1st (4% of order delivered)
  • Belgium: none delivered yet (planned for 2019)
  • Luxembourg: none delivered yet (planned for 2019)
There should be around 18 on the assembly lines right now - 8 for Germany, 3 for the UK, 2 for France, 2 for Turkey and 1 for Spain.

A very overdue thank you for that detailed list, Kato.

Airbus claims to be making good progress on a permanent solution to the gearbox problem, as well as the helicopter refueling issue.

How long are these built to last and as the UK has so many of the first production slots is it possible we may see replacements ordered if this is still in prduction in 20+ years?
Have we left any order slots for later so we can have some newer airframes to try and cycle them so the oldest don't get worn out?
