            Boeing needs to buy their batteries from Tesla...

            Interesting to see the media jackals jump all over this because they want to 'get' Boeing......

              Maybe but; the media roasted Airbus pretty well over their questionable birds.

              An interesting piece of trivia here: the Boeing 747 which is still in production has been around longer than Airbus.

                It's not lookin' good for the folks in Everett. I hope they get it sorted out- that bird is one awesome sight when it's taking to the skys.

                Not only that, but I'd be willing to bet more 737s have been built then all the different models of Airbus' built combined. And the good folks in Renton,WA are STILL cranking them out!!!

                Production of the 737 started first- before the 747's factory was even built...

                  The 787 came to market very much behind schedule. Whatever ironing needs completed, I suspect it will serve the traveling public for many years.
                  It's a shame the Anglo-French Concorde was scrapped because it blew a tire running over debris on the runway after 27 years of service.
