Those damn engineers and their calculations are impacting Boeing profits again.

This comes as Boeing also announced theyll stop making the F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet in 2025.

Funny thing is that they're competing for a contract to supply the Indian navy. If they win, they'll said they'll keep that line running until 2027. What a reward. I'll be impressed if Boeing is still around in twenty years.

The Super Hornet is a 40 (30 if you count the change from F/A-18 -> F/A-18E) year old airframe, mostly intended for carrier operations. It's reaching the end of it's life time, especially with F-35B/C in full swing production. Not every plane has the longevity of the B-52 or F-15.

The long-standing issues with the 787 is a direct consequence of moving its production out of Seattle to union bust and trying to recreate a century's worth of aerospace manufacturing culture overnight.

Sure. But those troubles are on top of the 737 MAX crashes. There was no reason for those to happen.

Everything compounds. I'll be surprised if Boeing exists in 20 years.

Sure, the US will have no domestic airliner production in 20 years. 🙄

The salesperson that did that deal is pissed. Likely have to cancel their Bugatti order.

I wouldn’t take delivery of them anyway.

Do you spend a lot of time taking delivery of commercial aircraft’s?

Nobody has the time for that.
