We make planes

Airplanes Drones & Vehicles

America’s landlord is visiting this week – Here’s another interesting blurb from the NYTimes, people are always asking what “we make now”… planes, 200 of them –

The White House announced shortly after the ceremony that the Chinese government had agreed to buy 200 airplanes from Boeing in a $19 billion deal, the centerpiece of $45 billion worth of American exports to China that are tied to President Hu Jintao’s state visit to Washington. China has also agreed to scrap a policy that favors Chinese technology firms for big government contracts, a senior administration official said.

Incredible, almost half of the USA’s exports to China are from one company, Boeing. We’re not just building a plane here, we’re building a dream…

    you don’t see what happens to the plane after EDS has left. The passengers are taking over and modify the plane so that it is able to land safely.

    I’m sure that the executive team at Boeing will pay themselves huge bonuses for this deal. Too bad their top sales guy, Obama, won’t even get a commission.
