Actually, Boeing bought only Douglas Aircraft, the large body aircraft manufacturing portion of the company. McDonnel continued separately.
And it wasn't just Board members. Harry Stonecipher was moved from St. Louis to replace Phil Condit as CEO. A few years later, Boeing moved its corporate headquarters from Seattle to Chicago. I have to ask, which is closer to St. Louis, Seattle or Chicago?
Disclosure: I was a systems engineer at Boeing's Wichita KS facility at the time it all went down.
Boeing's problems began when they started positioning Automobile Industry types instead of experienced Aviation Industry executives in the top spots. Plus, they need to remove all but one token bean counter from their board so they stop focusing on the wrong aspects of their problems.
"Unfortunately, there have been many more cases where the pilots were unable to handle even comparatively benign situations and killed many lives in the process.
"The reality is that the meat bag at the helm is still responsible for some 80% of all air accidents. Eliminating the Human Factor from the cockpit would result in a huge increase in the safety of flying."
MANY more?!? Please provide the evidence for your opinion and a source for the 80% number.
Also, realize the conclusions of many accident investigations attributed the cause(s) to pilot error because management concluded the general public had to be made to believe the machine is infallible or they would be too fearful to ever get on one.
I received a similar notice from the university in a town where I lived 20 years prior, Thing is, I never attended a course there so how they came to have any information about me is a puzzlement. And, would you believe, they told me they could not remove my personal information from their database(s). After stating my opinions of the incapacity of their IT staff, I changed all the numbers and closed all the accounts I could. After three years, I've not had a problem but that doesn't mean I don't still keep an eye out.
...by managers who failed math and are generally clueless? The NASA spokesdroid appears to have a problem with numbers, too.
“The Webb Space Telescope will exceed its capability in the infrared once it is launched at the end of this year," a NASA spokesperson said.
'This will surely pur(sic) "digital expert" into the same bucket of resume euphemusms(sic) as "proficient in Microsoft Office" = "can type".'
Several years ago I was approached by the local branch of a state university about teaching a course in "computer science". I was almost interested until I read the course description: The student will learn advanced concepts using Microsoft Office programs Word and Excel. I guess "advanced concepts" meant they already knew how to type.
