The Dassault/Dornier Alpha Jet is a light attack jet and advanced jet trainer co-manufactured by Dassault Aviation of France and Dornier Flugzeugwerke of Germany. It was developed specifically to perform the trainer and light attack missions, as well as to perform these duties more ideally than the first generation of jet trainers that preceded it. Following a competition, a design submitted by a team comprising Breguet Aviation , Dassault Aviation, and Dornier Flugzeugwerke, initially designated as the TA501 , was selected and subsequently produced as the Alpha Jet.

Both the French Air Force and German Air Force procured the Alpha Jet in large numbers, the former principally as a trainer aircraft and the latter choosing to use it as a light attack platform. As a result of post- Cold War military cutbacks, Germany elected to retire its own fleet of Alpha Jets in the 1990s and has re-sold many of these aircraft to both military and civilian operators. The Alpha Jet has been adopted by a number of air forces across the world and has also seen active combat use by some of these operators.

A total of three groups of manufacturers produced proposals in response to the requirement; these were Dassault, Breguet and Dornier submitted the "TA501", which had been developed through a merger of the Breguet 126 and Dornier P.375 concepts, VFW-Fokker submitted their "VFT-291" aircraft, while SNIAS/MBB submitted the "E.650 Eurotrainer". [6] Each of these proposals were to be powered by twin SNECMA Turbomeca Larzac turbofan engines.

Fastjet Mozambique commenced its first operations from Maputo (MPM) on 3 November, starting domestic links to Beira (BEW), Nampula (APL) and Tete (TET). The airline will operate the routes using its sole ERJ 145, with all three services going head-to-head with LAM Mozambique Airlines, currently the only carrier offering domestic services in Mozambique.

The latter carrier already operates the three sectors launched by fastjet Mozambique, with it offering 18 weekly flights on the 721-kilometre link to Beira, 13 on the 1,389-kilometre sector to Nampula, and eight on the 1,096-kilometre city pairing with Tete. fastjet Mozambique will provide nine weekly flights to Beira, a daily rotation to Nampula, and four weekly services to Tete.   

New management will launch operations in oil and gas-rich Mozambique to augment existing services in Tanzania, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

Bobby Tamplin was 26 years old in 1977, when he went to work as a parts fabricator on the F-16 fighter jet. At the time, he was told his job would last “maybe five years.”

Forty years later, the 66-year-old recently stood on a windy, cold flight line at Lockheed Martin — just a few weeks before his retirement — to bid goodbye to the last F-16 to be built in Fort Worth. It is a bittersweet moment for Tamplin, who grew up working on the assembly line, to remember a time when the plant built almost one fighter a day.

Later, when thinking about all the places the F-16 flies, he also said he felt a great responsibility. “You are producing an aircraft that is not only going to change Fort Worth, but it’s going to change air forces all over the world.”

An Arik Air flight to Port Harcourt on Saturday took off from the Murtala Muhammed Airport 2, (MMA2) Lagos, signalling the end of a 10-year rift between the airline and operators of the MMA 2 terminal.
