BOEING DECIDES NOT TO BUILD WIND TUNNELS

 BOEING DECIDES NOT TO BUILD WIND TUNNELS
 SEATTLE, Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA)


announced today it has decided not to build a new wind tunnel complex. In making that decision, Boeing determined that its future wind tunnel requirements could be met through the use of the company's current wind tunnel facilities and other wind tunnels worldwide.
 Last October Boeing announced it had selected five locations nationwide for further investigation as sites for a proposed new wind tunnel complex. Those locations were: Hanging Rock, Ohio; Lawrence, Kan.; Oak Ridge, Tenn.; Portage, Ind.; and Rathdrum, Idaho.
 "In our announcement last year, we made it clear that no decision had been made on whether the wind tunnels actually would be built," said Jim Nelson, director of Facilities for Boeing Commercial Airplane Group. "Our goal was to make a detailed investigation of those five sites to help determine whether to proceed with the project."
 With the decision not to build a new wind tunnel complex, Boeing will continue to operate its wind tunnels at two locations -- near Seattle and in Philadelphia. Those facilities are used for low-speed, transonic, and supersonic testing of aircraft and other aerospace products, as well as for general research.
