''The long-awaited 787 Dreamliner 'is the next evolutionary step''

Quote:
After five years under wraps, the future of commercial aviation is about to make its worldwide debut.

The global spotlight will be shining on The Boeing Co. July 8 (07-08-07) as it unveils its newest passenger jet in 13 years: the 787 Dreamliner. It hasn’t even flown yet and already the 787 is making aviation history as the world’s hottest-selling and most technically advanced new commercial jet ever.




Quote:
“This is the next evolutionary step in aviation,’’ says aviation consultant Scott Hamilton of Issaquah, Wash.-based Leeham Co. “It’s a game-changer for its manufacturing and assembly processes and will probably be mimicked by succeeding airplanes.’’

The pace is really heating up now. All eyes will be on seattle next week!

In the link one of the side stories is about Boeing flying high due to McNerney's leadership that turned Boeing around. I think the turn around had happened by the time McNerney arrived, he is guiding Boeing well and keeping them focused on the right things, emphasising professionalism is the way to be as a company.

The low spot that was the catalyst for the turnaround was at the end of Condit's reign - the bad attitudes of the $ before all else, not looking long term, seeing the workers as commodities and having the likes of Sears even talking to Drunyan about a position, much less hiring her. It stung Boeing very hard to be in such a public scandal and to lose the Tanker lease deal. Almost concurrently, there was in the military/aerospace area the case on the EELV also was quite ugly.

Although Stonecipher (former head of McD) got himself caught with his zipper down, I think he got Boeing to change course back to the approach that Boeing had pre McD. Bell also did a good interim job. I feel that Boeing selected McNerney as he matched the style and course that Boeing had set for itself.

I personally think Stonecipher was one of the "problems" more then one of the "solutions". I think Bell was a great asset to Boeing in his interim role and hope Boeing considers him for greater things then CFO. McNerney's background seems well-suited to running Boeing.

More than you know. He was, in fact, project manager for the 777, so he's brought two halo products to BCA if you add the 787.

I think the credit goes to ol' Noel for turning things around for Boeing. Just teasing.

The Condit days were gloom and doom. It was almost as if Phil, an aeronautics engineer, couldn't wait to get Boeing out of the commerical aircraft manufacturing biz. Wanted to turn Boeing into a giant Services/Consulting Company. Well those that Can DO, those who can't Consult. Weird. Glad he's gone,
