The Boe­ing Co. Everett Fac­tory

Finweek English Edition - - IN BRIEF -

Boe­ing 777 planes are man­u­fac­tured at the com­pany’s fa­cil­ity in Everett, Wash­ing­ton, USA. Adding ca­pac­ity on the 777-300ER is part of Boe­ing’s quest to drum up or­ders for a best-sell­ing air­craft line into the next decade as it pre­pares to start build­ing the up­graded 777X. The num­ber of years Al­bert Wood­fox (68) was im­pris­oned in soli­tary con­fine­ment in Louisiana, USA, fol­low­ing the death of a guard dur­ing a 1972 pri­son riot. A US dis­trict judge or­dered his un­con­di­tional re­lease on 9 June. Wood­fox has long main­tained his in­no­cence, which has been backed up by a sci­en­tific re­view of the ev­i­dence, a poly­graph test and an eye­wit­ness ac­count.
