Now that its ground offensive has taken control
of the battlefield, word comes that Toyota's
field commanders might have an eye toward the skies. That's right: Toyota is reportedly considering an offer from Mitsubishi
Heavy Industries to get into the aircraft business. MHI would like to see Toyota invest in a new passenger jet project, which, if it goes forward, would set up an aerial dogfight with the HondaJet
, which is already in the segment. Mitsubishi already produces its own plane, the Regional Jet. Is this the beginning of a new battle for air supremacy? Hmmm. Somebody cue the Kenny Loggins
Post erroneously referred to Fuji Heavy instead of Mitsubishi Heavy. The error has been corrected.
