A hell of a lot of high quality employment for UK engineers. A hell of a lot of income for local and national businesses. A hell of a lot of export revenue for UK plc. It is indeed, a hell of a lot.

Indeed, and an awful lot of it from significant, non-refundable deposits on, now, over 500 aircraft.
