Why Boeing Birds Fly South

WHY BOEING BIRDS FLY SOUTH

THE AIRFIELDS IN BOEING'S south Puget Sound facilities look more like parking lots these days as the Seattle aerospace giant doubles production of next-generation 737s from 7 to 14 a month. So Boeing is sending 10 of the new-model 737s down to Long Beach, Calif., for finishing work. Boeing pumped out planes before FAA and European certification was completed and the company is still struggling to install costly changes in more than 20 jets. The retrofit work has cost Boeing $656 million so far. Boeing will decide by this summer whether to move more 737 work south.EDITED BY KELLEY HOLLAND
