Boeing Details Presence At Asian Aerospace (Feb. 2002)



HONG KONG ---The Boeing Company, the leading aerospace company in the world, will field a significant presence -- with people and products and services -- at the Asian Aerospace 2002 show in Singapore. This year's event will be held Feb. 26 through March 3.

The Boeing exhibit, located in Hall A, will display graphic panels, plasma screens and models of various Boeing products for each major Boeing business unit -- Commercial Airplanes, Military Aircraft and Missile Systems, Space and Communications, Boeing Capital Corporation, Connexion by Boeing, and Air Traffic Management.

Boeing products scheduled to perform in the daily aerial flying program include the F/A-18 Super Hornet and the F-15E Eagle. Additionally, Boeing will have on static display the following products:

--Boeing Business Jet
--F/A-18 Super Hornet
--F-15E Eagle
--Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAM)
--Harpoon missile


During the show, Boeing Commercial Airplanes will spotlight the Sonic Cruiser, Boeing's newest airplane concept. The Sonic Cruiser is intended to change the way people fly, enabling passengers to travel non-stop directly to their desired destinations in less time. Additionally, Boeing will feature an exciting announcement that will further enhance the 747 family and solidify its well-deserved position at the forefront of the long-range airplane marketplace and its status as the airplane of Asia.

The Space and Communications unit will feature the 737 Airborne Early Warning and Control System at this year's Asian Aerospace show. This system is a unique blend of high-performance aircraft and mission equipment that represents the standard for future airborne early warning systems. The platform features the Boeing 737-700, an aircraft offering 21st century avionics, navigation equipment and flight deck.

Boeing Military Aircraft and Missile Systems will feature many of its military products and services, including the AH-64D Apache Longbow, the most advanced attack helicopter in the world today, and a re-configurable cockpit demonstrating both the F-15E Eagle and F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.

Boeing also will be represented by its Air Traffic Management (ATM) organization. This business unit was formed in November 2000, a move that elevated the company's focus on developing new concepts in air traffic management. The ATM team envisions an air traffic system that delivers to passengers what they ask for: safe, convenient, affordable and reliable air transportation, even as long-term demand for air travel is still expected to soar.
