Comment: The Russian entry has little chance considering the classification levels needed to participate. Nevertheless, you have to give them credit for trying! The battle between Boeing and Airbus will certainly be interesting to watch unfold. Comment: This decision has certainly taken a long time. The poll result is not terribly surprising in its closeness based on past results we've seen.

Comment: China can certainly churn out large amounts of equipment, rapidly copy advanced technology, and even make fairly sophisticated improvements at low cost. Nevertheless, experience has shown success in combat almost always goes to the better trained force. China has a long way to go in demonstrating its pilots are as proficient as America's. Comment: Even if found, we doubt the black boxes would provide any useful data after such a long time submerged in seawater. There appears to be little reason for continued searching.
