Museum of Flight Presents  How Boeing Defied the Airbus Challenge

Dec. 4 Lecture and book signing looks at the rivalry between the aviation giants

The Museum of Flight’s Dec. 4 Honeywell Explorer Lecture looks at one of the great corporate battles in aviation–Boeing vs. Airbus. During this presentation, author Mohan Pandey, a 37-year veteran of the aviation industry, will chronicle an insider’s account of how Boeing fought back in the high-stakes and highly political quest for global aviation supremacy. Based upon his 2010 book, “How Boeing Defied the Airbus Challenge: An Insider’s Account,” the program also tells the story of Airbus, the first European airplane manufacturer since World War II to not only succeed in challenging Boeing, but to also become a major force in the same market. The program is at 2 p.m. in the William M. Allen Theater, and is free with admission to the Museum. Pandey will sign books after the presentation.
