whalejet
 n.— «As a supreme symbol of Europe’s prowess in aerospace, indeed in modern technology itself, the A 380 superjumbo jet, is melting down. No longer the embodiment of European cooperation and unity, its third announced delivery delay reveals internal chaos, bickering, finger-pointing and recrimination within Airbus and its parent EADS. The whalejet, as it is known to some, has morphed from queen of the air into drama queen of the air.» —“The Airbus Fiasco” by Thomas Lifson American Thinker Sept. 22, 2006.
