TWA May Cancel Order for 10 Airbus A-330s: The carrier ordered the jets from the European consortium Airbus Industrie. The trade publication Commercial Aviation Report quoted unnamed sources as saying Trans World Airlines has also deferred for as much as a year $10 million in progress payments that were due June 30 as it decides about the order. Airbus, which wants to keep the order, believes TWA wants to husband cash, having gone through an estimated $20 million in June, the magazine reported.

Airbus Industrie accused Martin Marietta Corp. of performing "incredibly shoddy" work on the construction of its A-330 passenger jets, causing delays in the delivery of planes to two big Asian airlines. The setback is the latest in a series of problems besetting the brand-new twin-engine A-330, which together with the four-engine A-340 is expected to drive the European consortium's jetliner sales well into the next century.

How do you hide a $330-million airplane? One that weighs 836,000 pounds, features an operating room, 85 telephones and a main deck that rivals the size of a nice Pasadena home? You don't. And that's a potential problem for the White House and President Bush's political advisers. The new Air Force One, a giant Boeing 747-200B with all those features and many more, was quietly delivered to Andrews Air Force Base just outside Washington late Thursday afternoon.
