Manufacturer Specification Changes Notices

Any Specification may be amended by the Seller through a Manufacturer Specification Change Notice ("MSCN"), which will be substantially in the form set out in Exhibit B-2 hereto and will set out the MSCN's Aircraft embodiment rank as well as, in detail, the particular Development Change to be made to such Specification and the effect, if any, of such Development Change on performance, weight, Base Price of the Aircraft, Delivery Date of the Aircraft affected thereby and interchangeability or replaceability requirements under the Specification. In addition, at the request of the Buyer, the Seller will provide to the Buyer [CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED]

The Seller will promptly notify the Buyer in writing of any MSCN applicable to the Aircraft, and such notice will describe the reason for making such amendment and the revised Specification. Except when the MSCN is necessitated by an Aviation Authority directive or by equipment obsolescence, in which case the MSCN will be implemented without requiring the Buyer's consent, if the MSCN adversely affects the performance, weight, Base Price of the Aircraft affected thereby, Delivery Date of the Aircraft affected thereby or the interchangeability or replaceability requirements under the applicable Specification, [CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED]

For the purposes of Clause 2.2.2.1, [CONFIDENTIAL PORTION OMITTED]
