lets just cut to the chase when Boeing passed over Allen Mulally that was the deciding factor a power struggle occured
and McDonald won to the downfall of Boeing and new design concepts. Nearly totally trusting subcontractors on 787 mfg parts. Spec to drawings to FCA to PCA. Its like those did not happen at all. I know, I was part of the audit team on the B-2 Bomber. 1999 time frame engineers and subcontract management were laid off. Then in 2005 they re-hired some of my subcontract friends trying to make up for years of lost time. Even today this company (managers) keeps #$%$ on investors.
