You could have seen that coming from a mile away. Even though the problems
were not all directly his fault (suppliers promised too much too
quickly)someone eventually would have to take the fall. Too bad the board
didn't make Condit take it. Would have been more fitting. Hopefully, the cost
and production initiatives that Woodard kept on track are seen through. They
really are the only hope for Boeing in the long run. The interview with
Woodard in the 2-8 September issue of Flight International now takes on a
whole new light.
