Boeing have disclosed details of its media presentations for the Farnborough International Air Show, which include discussions of the transformational 7E7 Dreamliner and Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft programs.
The company’s schedule begins Monday 19 July with a briefing by Commercial Airplanes President and Chief Executive Officer Alan Mulally. This session will look at the current commercial airplanes market and provide an outlook to the future for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, highlighting the tremendous interest in the 7E7 Dreamliner.
Also on Monday, representatives from the U.S. Navy and Boeing will brief the media on the Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft program that the Navy recently awarded to Boeing, at 11:00 a.m. in the Media Centre’s Hatfield Suite.
“The Boeing story is about aerospace leadership, and we are looking forward to telling that story at Farnborough,” said Tod Hullin, Boeing senior vice president of communications. “This company is on the move and generating real momentum. Our successes with the 7E7 and the Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft programs are just the latest examples of Boeing executing its strategy of commercial and military balance to lead the aerospace industry.”
Several Boeing-built aircraft will be on display at the show, including the F/A-18F Super Hornet, AH-64D Apache Longbow helicopter and F-15C Eagle, which are scheduled for daily flight demonstrations.
