Newsweek headline The ‘800’ is Here!
article “The 900 is not,” said Bill Dickey, the company’s chief executive.
“It’s the exact same design as the 700.”
But that doesn’t mean it won’t take a few more years to make the first commercial passenger jet to fly.
Dickey said the company is still working out the kinks, and it could be more than three years before it’s ready to make a commercial airliner.
Dicerys first-generation 902 was unveiled in 2006, with the first jet being delivered in 2013.
The company’s first- and second-generation aircraft were both delayed by the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
Boeing was able to build the first two 902s, but those were mothballed because of the tsunami and the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, so it was difficult to get the final batch of engines.
But after Boeing was awarded a contract to build two more 902 aircraft, it’s clear that Boeing has the technology and the finances to build a fleet of those planes.
“We can go into the next two to three years, and hopefully in the next few years we will have a good production run,” Dickey told Newsweek.
The second-gen 902 has a number of features, including a redesigned nose and the addition of a more aggressive exhaust system.
It also has a more powerful engine, which has a new turbojet engine that can produce up to 6,000 pounds of thrust.
Boeing says the company has the same engine for the first-gen aircraft, but it’s being built for a new model.
The 902 is about a third the weight of the first 902, and about a half the size.
Diericks said that Boeing is working with several companies to develop the jet for the US market.
“This is an example of how quickly Boeing can take on new projects, and this is a huge opportunity for us,” he said.
Boeing has been testing a variety of models, including the 901, and said that the 902 should be ready to fly sometime next year.
Boeing is not the only airline looking to develop its own planes.
American Airlines is also planning to start a production line for its Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the jet that is expected to take over the world from Boeing 767 Dreamliners.
