Lockheed Martin? Really?!
He has no choice, NOrway is spending 60 billions on new fighter jets from them, and the goverment wants norwegian companies to get in on the party with their technology. If you see the beginning of the thread the visit is highly controversial in norwegian press, it is the deffence ministry who has decided they should go. Originally Mette-MArit was also supposed to be there, but last minute they shipped her of to SF to have waffles and meet kids at the norwegian church and a very good phot oppertunerty the image-press could not pass. The result was of course that most of the press went with her and very few stayed behind with Haakon at Lockheed. Haakon was clearly uncomfterble when asked about the visit yesterday, but made decent answers, when pressed he reffered to the state secretary that was standing like 1 cm to his side ready to jump in. Lucky for him NRK is not the most critical press you can drum up
Soemtimes also royals has to do what their boss tells them;)
