PROGRAM: Boeing in Washington, our future together by Stephen Eylander.
 From within the "Red Barn" factory in 1916, Boeing built and delivered seaplanes to the US Government during WW I. To meet the demands of World War II, Boeing built thousands of B-17s and B-29s.









   The first jetliner, the Boeing 707 was introduced at Seafair 1954. Many are still in service, but now more sophisticated aircraft engines burn 70% less fuel and are 90% quieter.  During the past 20 years, air travel has increased dramatically, and during the next 20 years demand is expected to triple, especially in other countries. Boeing expects to sell over 36,000 new planes, and export 80% of new airliners to overseas companies.

The growing demand for Boeing aircraft models 737, 777 and 787, require more new factory space and additional employees. The company employs 160,000  worldwide, and 81,000 in Washington at their five northwest plants. As the company expands and steps up production, they will need more employees; however, half their Washington employees will reach retirement age in the next five years.

Building complex airframes requires many new parts. The new carbon fiber wing for the 777x will be built in a newly constructed 1.2 million square foot factory in Everett.  Aircraft and engine components are fabricated mostly by other Washington businesses putting $5 billion into the economy.
