Boeing Reports Second Quarter Deliveries

The Boeing Company today reported second quarter and six months 2000 deliveries across its commercial, military and space operations. The company reported delivering 167 commercial jet transports in the second quarter of 2000. This reflects planned deliveries, as well as additional deliveries that were delayed due to the engineering strike.

"As promised, by the end of the second quarter, we have essentially recovered from the strike," said Boeing Chairman and CEO Phil Condit. "The Boeing team really pulled together to get things back on track for our customers, and we are delighted with the results." Boeing's year-to-date major program deliveries follow:
