"The UK's key defense manufacturer BAE Systems plants to cut some 1,000 jobs this week as orders for the Typhoon jet fighter are drying up. A spokesman said that the life of the Typhoon as a product has peaked. They have produced 160 Typhoon fighters for the Royal Air Force [RAF] and are down to producing the last 12 for Oman and now there is a new order for 24 Typhoon fighters from Qatar - - but there does not appear to be any further orders for Typhoon fighters coming anytime soon, and so the work force will have 1,000 jobs cut."
