 BOEING DEFENSE & SPACE GROUP AWARDED E-4B AIRCRAFT
 LOGISTICS SUPPORT CONTRACT
 COCOA BEACH, Fla., Aug. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing Aerospace Operations Inc. (BAO) said today it has been awarded a U.S. Air Force contract to continue contractor logistics support (CLS) for the E-4B Advanced Airborne Command Post aircraft.
 The firm fixed-price contract is valued at $35.4 million. Including options, the contract extends from Aug. 1, 1992, through March 31, 1995. No new hiring is planned.
 Teamed with Boeing as a subcontractor is E-Systems (NYSE: ESY), Greenville Division, Greenville, Texas. E-Systems will perform depot maintenance and paint services.
 "We are extremely happy to have this opportunity to continue CLS support to the E-4B program and the (U.S.) Air Force," said Joe Shawver, BAO program manager. "We are very proud of our history with the E-4B Airborne Command Post."
 Boeing has provided contractor logistics support for the E-4B since the aircraft entered the Air Force inventory in 1974. In 1986, BAO assumed management of the CLS contract. In 1987, BAO also assumed total E-4B program responsibility including software maintenance and system integration laboratory operations.
 "We are pleased that Boeing has been chosen to continue providing quality services to our E-4B Air Force customer," said Frank P. Smith, BAO president and general manager.
 The E-4B Airborne Command Post aircraft are based at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb. Program management, planning and control of depot maintenance/paint and spares requisitioning are performed by Aircraft & Marine Operations in facilities located near the government's contracting and management organizations at the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center.
 Providing CLS includes identifying spare parts requirements, procuring the spares, operating the Contractor Operated and Maintained Base Supply, depot repairs and replenishing failed spares and providing technical assistance and training by on-site field service personnel. This support assures that the basic aircraft and on-board command, control and communications systems are ready to support the Air Force operational mission.
 The E-4B Airborne Command Post, a modified Boeing 747 aircraft equipped with extensive electronics, would be the critical communication link between national command authorities and the nation's strategic retaliatory forces during and following an attack on the United States.
 BAO is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA), with headquarters in Cocoa Beach. The subsidiary employs approximately 1,700 people worldwide, providing services to customers requiring technical skills and aerospace expertise.
