Boeing came close to losing its Starliner crew capsule by Larry Dighera
Boeing's competence seems to be eroding. I hope the new CEO can turn it around. Perhaps Boeing's move of engineering staff to Chicago was a poor decision. Such a financial-based decision was a mistake, and should be corrected by moving headquarters out of the city that closed Meigs Field, and...
