British Aerospace and a Success Story: It's nice to be able to report a success story in Britain at a time when the world must think the U.K. is a breeding ground for failure. At British Aerospace, the HS 125 executive jet has been carving out a brilliant track record, taking 36% of the American market for medium class jets, selling at ??2,500,0000 each with a wide variety of modifications to suit the individual buyer, such as showers, beds and TV sets to accompany the telephones and plush fittings. Super salesmen fly over 100,000 miles a year in search of buyers and provide the 72,000 workforce spread throughtout Britain with a healthy ??3,000 million order book. 471 of them have been sold already to European, Arab and overseas companies by men who will fly a prospective customer into the desert and land on soft sand to prove the quality of both the 125 and its bigger brother, a 52 seater which sells for ??3 million.
