Great Article On This Years Developments...

Fri Dec 02, 2005 12:06 am

This is a very good read of what has happened in the past year or so... and of course the article title says it all "Boeing nose ahead in Qantas order race"

Interesting how this horse race is playing out... it seems to me that Boeing is really working hard to be number 1 again.

If you read the article it seems that they are doing about everything right! Too bad I've read the last sentence of the article:

So he wrote a book about the 787. How does that disqualify him from writing this article? The title is still objective. It's not as if the title is "The 787 Rocks!" or "I LUV Boeing!"
