Boeing Participation in Farnborough International 2000: Media Advisory

The Boeing Company, the world's largest aerospace company, will be a major participant in the biennial Farnborough International air show near London. This year's event will be held July 24-30. Members of the accredited media are invited to visit the Boeing Press Chalet (Chalet Row B6) located adjacent to the Boeing Chalet (B1-5).

Phil Condit, Boeing chairman and chief executive officer, will hold a press conference at 9:30 -- 10:45 a.m., Wednesday, July 26, in the Radliffe Suite of the air show's main SBAC Media Centre. Condit also will participate in a press conference with the other CEOs and leaders of the global aerospace and defense trading exchange announced in March. This session will be held in the SBAC Media Centre at noon, Tuesday, July 25, during which the partners will unveil the name and brand for the industry-wide exchange, as well as discuss the current status of the B2B project.

Some of the Boeing highlights at this year's Farnborough air show will be the international flying debut of the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, a full-scale model of the operational version of its entry in the Joint Strike Fighter competition, the BBJ 737-700 with Connexion by BoeingSM, and the first air show appearance of the long-range Boeing 767-400ER jetliner. The 767-400ER on static display, which began a world tour July 10, has a one-of-a-kind exterior paint scheme and features interior graphics and fabrics that record man's fascination with flight.

Other Boeing products scheduled to be on static display or participate in the air show include the C-17 Globemaster III, AH-64D Apache Longbow, F-15E Eagle, the Joint Direct Attack Munition, and the Harpoon and SLAM-ER missiles.
