David appears on Look North


David was interviewed by BBC Look North’s Peter Levy about the impact of the Indian decision to opt for the French manufactured Rafale over the Typhoon, on BAe’s Brough site.

David explained that although there will be no “immediate, direct impact”, BAe managers described the possibility of the Indian fighter aircraft contract being awarded to British manufacturers as a potential ‘game-changer’ that could save the Brough site.

He finished by suggesting that it remained possible that the final contract would be awarded to Typhoon over the Rafale, but would require a big push from the government.
