    Why did the masks deploy? Is this normal for an Airbus flight?
    From News media:
    One person was being treated at a hospital and five others reported nausea and headaches after oxygen masks deployed on UAL Flight 447 from Denver to Los Angeles, an Airbus A320, the Grand Junction Fire Department told NBC News. Shawn Montgomery, a spokesman for the fire department, said the hospitalization was likely a precaution because of the patient's medical history.
    United said in a statement that the diversion was "due to a medical issue onboard." All passengers were evacuated safely and were to be flown to Los Angeles on a different plane, it said.

    since it closed at 147, your prediction was pretty lame.

    EL SEGUNDO, Calif., July 20, 2015 – Boeing [NYSE: BA] successfully demonstrated a digital version of the Global Positioning System (GPS) III navigation signals, a breakthrough that could contribute to significantly modernizing this vital service.
    This advancement overcomes the limitations of current GPS analog payloads in combining multiple signals and accommodating future requirements. It also has fewer components, weighs and costs less, is simpler to integrate and test, and is able to incorporate future signals.

    I expected some good delivery numbers this weekend but so far not much happening. Count is 20 planes so far. But there are some positive signs for the coming weeks in July. Several 747's are flying and there are six 787's ready for delivery per NYC787. And there were test flights showing up today on today out of Charleston
    on flightradar24. Perhaps the Charleston plant as finally allowed some OT at least on test flights. Most of the ready for delivery planes are Charleston built.

    From The Guardian:
    Boeing Co. is poised to grab a Paris Air Show win on Airbus Group SE's home turf, amassing $40.8 billion in aircraft orders and commitments as the fair nears a close.
    Airbus's haul stood at $30.1 billion at list prices on the third day of the aviation industry's oldest and largest trade event, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That total is 60 percent less than last year's forum, in Farnborough, England, while Boeing's was little changed.
    With announcements winding down before the public is admitted to the expo on Friday, Boeing is about to upend the usual dominance of Toulouse, France-based Airbus in Paris order announcements.

    It is another slow start to the month/quarter. After 15 days, the delivery count is 16 planes.
    There were no deliveries from 7/3 though 7/9. There have been a lot of flight tests. 49 deliveries to go for the month to stay on target. No word yet on any delays due to the seat vendor factory.

    CAPE CANAVERAL AIR FORCE STATION, Fla., July 15, 2015 – The 10th Boeing [NYSE: BA] GPS IIF satellite has reached orbit and sent its first signals after being launched earlier today. This satellite advances the U.S. Air Force’s modernization program for GPS, improving accuracy and enhancing security for the navigation system used by millions of people around the world every day.
    The Boeing-built GPS IIFs are the newest generation of GPS satellites, delivering a longer design life, greater accuracy, increased signal power for civil applications, a more robust military M-code signal and variable power for better jamming resistance. The IIFs also are outfitted with the new civilian L-5 signal which, when fully operational, will be used for emergency applications.

    fed announced rate hike likely later his year. Rate hike will lower NAV to not by much if hike is small.
    But any NAV drop might trigger some computerized selling.
