    Is it out yet? Boeing Ford merger

    This merger won't work. Look what happened to Lockheed in the 70's. When GM laidoff workers at their Van Nuys auto assembly plant most of the workers were hired by Lockheed to assemble the L1011 Tristar plane. These workers had no knowledge of airplane assemlbly and they had to be trained. Lots of errors where made during the assembly of the plane. Time and money was waisted. Lockheed sales of the L1011 dropped when Boeing introduced the DC-10. Assembling a plane is not the same as assembling an auto. History will repeat again.
