Boeing Co. sued a Texas-based company that it says failed to fulfill a contract to design the interiors of replacement planes for Air Force One jets that transport U.S. presidents.

Chicago-based Boeing, which was hired by the U.S. Air Force in 2018 to build two 747-8 aircraft to replace the existing Air Force One models, said it had no choice but to cancel its contracts with GDC Technics LLC for work on current and future government executive aircraft “due to their insolvency and failure to meet our contractual obligations.”
