Trump has called North Atlantic Treaty Organisation obsolete and excoriated European allies last month for not spending enough on their own defenses.

Since May 2, F-35 pilots on five occasions reported symptoms of hypoxia, or oxygen deprivation, he said.

Airbus has clinched a deal for 100 single-aisle A320neo planes in its first big move at the Paris Air Show, where the European planemaker is jockeying with Boeing for orders amid burgeoning competition from China.

The F-35 flew briefly at the Farnborough Air Show past year but chose Paris for its worldwide debut acrobatic demonstration.

Engineers, test pilots, medics and others experts are "digging into this problem 24 hours a day", to try to identify the cause, Canterbury said. The agreement, valued at approximately $4.74 billion at current list prices, is split evenly between 20 new orders for the 737 MAX 10 and conversions of 20 of the low-priced carrier's 737 MAX 8 airplanes of its current order to 737 MAX 10s.

"We are delighted to welcome Tibet Financial Leasing as a new Boeing customer and a launch customer of the newest 737 MAX family member", said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president, Global Sales and Marketing, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 737 MAX, the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history, and the cutting-edge 787 Dreamliner will play a key role in bolstering our fleet and advancing our global market presence to fulfill the vision".

The new wingtips, unveiled on Sunday, would only be put into production if Airbus received "a large order", he said.

"This 737 MAX 10 order further enhances our fleet with the newest technology, offering our customers commonality along with increased range and available seating", said Alec Burger, President and Chief Executive Officer of GECAS. The engine order is valued at more than $1.3 billion at list prices.

French fighter jets swooped overhead as the biennial aviation and defense industry kicked off.

Boeing generated a fresh burst of activity at the world's biggest airshow by launching the 737 MAX 10. The Group also has 50 options for the 737 MAX and has converted 10 of these to the 737 MAX 10.

The industry is eager to show off its wares at the Paris show after a string of public relations embarrassments recently, from the United Airlines' passenger getting dragged off a flight to British Airways' massive outage.
