I think so. I remember getting one all about the 777 earlier this year
as a "anonymous" pressie from a student here who aparently worked for
Ansett or Qantas, and got a hold of it (cool!). An interesting magazine.
I think it said it was $35/yr subscriptions but I'm unsure if you have
to be a Boeing customer to get it or not. I'll try and fish it out and
find the details.
