$6 billion is an incredible sum for two aircraft that already had airframes produced. Yes, I know its all in systems, but this is just over the top. I’ve been on both of the VC-25As before and I’m familiar with what goes into them. They are truly two of a kind, but Boeing doesn’t have their “A team” on these aircraft and I’m starting to doubt that Boeing even has an A-team any more. Every program they touch has problems.
This is the way the taxpayer subsidizes Boeing's constant screw ups on the 737, KC46, 787, 777x etc.
Yep. And it needs to stop. Pencil whipping the ledgers is not new to Boeing...
;boeing is doing their periodic extortion dance in front of us all. If the money is not paid as requested then boeing will slow-putt the completion as they have been doing, and a confrontation will be played out in full view.
Boeing already signed the Contract! Tough Luck! Kind of like buying a house and the owner goes up on you 1/2 way to closing!
How can any man-made object be $1 BILLION over budget? Boeing is claiming the project is one thousand million dollars over budget? That claim alone demonstrates their incompetence on a monumental level. Somebody's got some splainin' to do and some heads need to roll.
