Boeing to Highlight 787 Dreamliner, 777-200LR Worldliner and KC-767A Tanker Transport Aircraft at Paris Air Show 2005

CHICAGO, June 3, 2005 – The world’s longest-range passenger jet, the most advanced and capable tanker aircraft, and the aviation industry’s best-selling new airplane will be among the products featured by The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] at this year’s Paris Air Show, beginning June 13 at Le Bourget airfield outside Paris.

“Boeing is entering the air show with tremendous momentum,” said Tod Hullin, Boeing senior vice president, Communications. “This is a company that’s on the move. Our financial performance has been strong, and the operating engine of the company is running on all cylinders,” he said. “The market recovery in the commercial airplane business is taking hold, and orders for Boeing airplanes are up significantly. At the same time, program performance across our defense and space businesses has been excellent as we add to our industry-leading backlog.”

Hullin issued a reminder that Boeing does not artificially store up commercial orders to be announced at air shows. “Our customers determine the time and place for order announcements, and we support their decisions,” he said.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner will be showcased in a dedicated exhibit space adjacent to the static aircraft displays, which feature the Boeing 777-200LR (long range), 747-400 Freighter and the new KC-767A tanker aircraft. The 777-200LR, which will be capable of providing direct, non-stop service between cities as far as 17,446 km apart when it enters service in 2006, is currently scheduled to arrive at Le Bourget on Friday, June 10 at about 0830. The KC-767A for the Italian Air Force will arrive later in the day at around 1700. Accredited media are invited to coordinate with the show staff regarding photographing the aircrafts’ arrivals.

Boeing’s schedule begins on Monday, June 13, with briefings by the President and CEO of Boeing Integrated Defense Systems Jim Albaugh at 1300, followed by 787 Dreamliner Vice President and General Manager Mike Bair at 1330. Alan Mulally, President and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, will conduct a briefing on Tuesday, June 14, at 1300. These executive briefings will take place in the Salon Press Centre. Connexion by Boeing President Laurette Koellner also will attend to discuss the first year of in-flight connectivity service for commercial airlines and their passengers.

In addition to the 777-200LR Worldliner, 747-400 Freighter and the Italian KC-767A Tanker, several Boeing-built military products are scheduled to be on display, including the C-17 Globemaster III, F-15E Strike Eagle, AH-64D Apache Longbow, and the SLAM-ER and Harpoon missiles. The F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, flown by Boeing F/A-18 Chief Test Pilot Ricardo Traven, will take part in the daily flying display.

Accredited journalists are invited to the Boeing Press Chalet (A406-7), directly opposite the main Boeing chalet, throughout the week. Boeing will hold a series of briefings on key programs and issues. Each day, media should check the briefing schedule at the Boeing Press Chalet, Boeing Exhibit and the Salon Press Centre for updates.

I hope Boeing will at least mention something about the 747 Advanced.
If the Aflop- 380 is delayed even farther then the recent delay of 6 months, then, it's a good guess that the whole program is in jeopardy.

As well they should. It'll be great to see superior American products on display on the homefield of Airbus. (And this is coming from someone whose company uses Brazilian and Canadian jets and ATR and BAE turbo-props...)

Vietnam Airlines To Buy Four Boeing 787 Dreamliners

HANOI, VIETNAM - Vietnam Airlines will buy four Boeing 787 Dreamliners as part of a plan to expand its fleet to meet increasing travel demands, an airline spokesman said Friday.

Prime Minister Phan Van Khai has instructed the state-owned airline to complete the contract, which is expected to be signed during his visit to the United States on June 19-25, said spokesman Nguyen Chan.

U.S.-based Boeing Co. has said the wide-body jetliners will be delivered to the communist country in 2010. The deal is valued at about $500 million at list prices, although airlines usually negotiate discounts.

Khai will be the first Vietnamese prime minister to travel to Washington. Vietnam and the U.S. are former foes that normalized diplomatic relations 10 years ago.

Ok... I am not a economic expert, but ? since Boeing is getting all of these orders this year, wouldn't that help our trade deficit ? and would that be a good indicator that our economy is doing well ?

The diameter of those 777 engines is the same diameter as the fuselage of the 737, and the read horizontal stabilizers is also the same wing length as the 737.
The 777 is only slightly smaller than the 747 with out the iconic " 747 Hump ".
