Boeing Achieves Major Flight Testing Milestone on First Wedgetail Aircraft

ST. LOUIS, July 5, 2005 - Boeing [NYSE: BA] successfully completed the aircraft performance and flight handling test program with the first 737 airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) aircraft for Australia’s Project Wedgetail.

“The plane performed superbly in terms of its avionics, structure, systems, flight handling characteristics and performance,” said Patrick Gill, Boeing vice president of 737 AEW&C programs. “This milestone validates the aircraft’s digital design, and wind tunnel and simulator analyses. It is a major step forward in providing this powerful, new capability to Australia.”

The aircraft exceeded all specification requirements for altitude, speed and endurance. It logged more than 245 flights and more than 500 flight hours. Takeoff performance, flight handling and simulated air to air refueling testing were conducted at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. Engine nacelle and engine component cooling were tested in Mesa, Ariz. Additional tests included icing and crosswinds.

Flight testing of the airborne early warning and control mission system, including the MESA radar, is scheduled for later this year.

Australia has purchased six aircraft for its Wedgetail fleet. Delivery of the first two aircraft currently being modified in Seattle, Wash., is scheduled for 2006, with the other four aircraft delivered by 2008. Turkey has purchased four of the aircraft for its Peace Eagle program.

The 737 series is one of the most popular and reliable jet aircraft in the world and that has resulted in a worldwide base of suppliers, parts and support equipment. The 737 AEW&C is designed to provide airborne battle management capability with 10 state-of-the-art mission system consoles. It continues more than 30 years of Boeing tradition in airborne surveillance and command and control with the 707 and 767 AWACS fleets. Currently the aircraft are operated by the United States, NATO, the United Kingdom, France, Japan and Saudi Arabia.

Northrop Grumman’s Multi-role Electronically Scanned Array (MESA) radar is the critical sensor aboard the 737 AEW&C. The MESA array is designed to provide optimal performance in range, tracking, and accuracy. The radar is able to track airborne and maritime targets simultaneously and can help the mission crew direct the control of high-performance fighter aircraft while continuously scanning the operational area.

A unit of The Boeing Company, Boeing Integrated Defense Systems is one of the world’s largest space and defense businesses. Headquartered in St. Louis, Boeing Integrated Defense Systems is a $30.5 billion business. It provides network-centric system solutions to its global military, government, and commercial customers. It is a leading provider of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems; the world’s largest military aircraft manufacturer; the world’s largest satellite manufacturer and a leading provider of space-based communications; the primary systems integrator for U.S. missile defense; NASA’s largest contractor; and a global leader in sustainment solutions and launch services.

Boeing nears derivative decisions

US manufacturer close to launching 747 Advanced and 737-900X and is set to save 747-400 freighter

Boeing is closing on launch decisions on two new airliner derivatives within the next few months amid mounting signs that sufficient launch customers are now lined up for both the 747 Advanced and long-awaited 737-900X.

“We have a team working on [747] Advanced and they are hugging our customers to sell them the business case,” says Boeing chairman Lew Platt. “The team is really enthused. The reception [in the market] has been very good. The business case is not as tough as the 787 or [Airbus] A380. I fully expect [a decision] in the next few months and maybe as early as the end of this month.”

Boeing vice-president sales Scott Carson adds that customer interest is also shifting in favour of the passenger variant, rather than the freighter as previously seen. “Much of the early interest was in the freighter, but now the majority of the interest is among airlines,” he says. The potential 747 Advanced customers include some airlines that have already ordered the A380 as well as some that want to “move up in scale without taking on the risk of the A380”, he adds.

In addition to growing signs of launch customers for the Advanced, Boeing is seeing equally important indications of renewed interest in the current 747-400, particularly the freighter. As a result the company says it will not call a halt to the programme in the near term as previously threatened.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes president Alan Mulally says: “We thought we might announce the conclusion of production at the end of this year and that’s not going to be the case because the demand for the 747-400 is increasing. We don’t anticipate any announcement this year on stopping the 747 and that gives us another option because it gives us time to bridge to the 747 Advanced,” says Mulally, who adds that entry into service would be either late 2008 or early 2009.

Boeing also hopes to formally launch the higher-capacity 737-900X variant by the end of August, and plans to standardise all production of the largest member of the family on this variant pending agreement with -900 operators.

Carson says “two customers have accepted proposals for the aircraft and we are in the process of taking these through to definitive agreements to allow us to make a formal launch later this summer”. The two airlines are Indonesia-based Lion Air and Indian low-fare start-up SpiceJet, which in February ordered 10 Boeing 737-800s.

EVA Air set to become second 777F customer

EVA Air set to become second 777F customer

EVA Air is considering placing an order for 10 Boeing 777 Freighters, which would establish it as the second buyer for the type following Air France’s decision to place a launch order for five last month.



The order would be “in addition” to existing orders EVA has placed for 12 777-300ER and three 777-200LR passenger aircraft, says the Taiwanese carrier. Its first 777-300ER emerged from Boeing’s Seattle factory late last month.

“The 777F has only two engines and with jet fuel prices sky high at the moment, we realise an aircraft with two engines [as opposed to four] will save us a lot of fuel,” says the airline.

EVA says it is thinking about replacing its Boeing MD-11Fs – which are about 10 years old – with 777-200LR-based freighters from around 2009. They would be operated on long-haul routes to Europe and the USA, it says. EVA also operates 747-400 freighters.

Meanwhile, Airbus and Boeing have approached EVA subsidiary UNI Air about possible replacements for the airline’s fleet of Boeing MD-90s.

UNI is interested in Airbus A320-family aircraft or Boeing 737-800s but is in no hurry to decide because the MD-90s are “still pretty new”. UNI’s 13 MD-90-30s were built between 1996 and 1998.

Turkish Airlines places new order for eight B-737-800 passenger planes from Boeing
1 July 2005

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - Turkish Airlines has ordered eight Boeing-737-800 passenger planes in a new order in addition to its previous deal to buy 15 planes, the company said in a statement Friday.

Turkey's national carrier, which agreed to buy 15 B-737-800 from Boeing in 2004, placed the new order after securing funding for the payment, said Recep Guvelioglu, a spokesman for Turkish Airlines.

The company also plans to buy 36 planes from Airbus, as part of its largest expansion plan.

The last time the company expanded was in 1997. Turkey was forced to put new purchases on hold following a deep economic crisis in 2001.

The country has become a popular tourist destination in recent years.

Boeing, Guggenheim Aviation Partners Sign for Six 747-400ER Freighters

SEATTLE, July 5, 2005 -- Guggenheim Aviation Partners (GPR) will receive the first of six 747-400ER Freighters beginning in late 2006 and continue through the first half of 2008. Guggenheim currently owns a total of 11 Boeing airplanes, eight of which are leased to operators, with three in freighter conversion programs.

The 747-400ERF has a maximum takeoff weight of 910,000 pounds (412,775 kg) and a maximum payload of 248,600 pounds (112,760 kg). The airplane's range of 4,970 nautical miles (9,200 km) makes it ideal for routes such as New York to Frankfurt, London to Seoul, or Tokyo to Los Angeles. Typical 747-400ERF cruise speed is 560 mph (901 km/h).

Yes but that has nothing to do with the manufactuer, For instance USair now mostly buys a320's for domestic flights. However southwest air and jet blue are doing well, and they buy boeing 737's (well at least SW does)


I am so happy to see the 747 advanced plane be a little bit succesful. I love 747's and I was worried they were gonna retire soon but I hope those new ADV's hold up well.

I thought boeing was doing terribly but I guess I was wrong.

I meant the fact that boeing become successful due to the american military and american companies and now thanks to international airlines they're still doing good.
