McDONNELL DOUGLAS CORP. PRESENTS THE CORPORATION'S HIGHEST HONOR TO EIGHT EMPLOYEES OF McDONNELL DOUGLAS AEROSPACE IN CAPE CANAVERAL

 ST. LOUIS, July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- McDonnell Douglas Corp. presented 103 individuals with the corporation's highest honor, the Spirit of Excellence Award, in ceremonies held here July 27.
 In recognition of their extraordinary achievements, this select group of employees and suppliers received a crystal award and McDonnell Douglas stock at a banquet in their honor.
 The award was established in 1989 to recognize employees and suppliers who display initiative, ingenuity, dedication to quality, and commitment to customer satisfaction.
 "Spirit of Excellence Award winners are people who continuously look for ways to improve McDonnell Douglas products and services," said John F. McDonnell, the corporation's chairman and chief executive officer. "They are people who make customer satisfaction a top priority. We know we can depend on them and so do their customers."
 This year's winners consist of eight teams and one individual.
 There were eight employees of McDonnell Douglas Aerospace in Cape Canaveral, Fla., who received the award. They are the members of the Delta Propulsion Engineering Team: Frank Bunge, Andy Haupt and Stan Sater of Cocoa Beach, Fla.; Randy Long and Dave McFarland of Merritt Island, Fla.; Ron Martin Jr. and Walt Tonitto of Rockledge, Fla.; and Rick Navarro of Orlando, Fla. The Delta Propulsion Engineering Team is known for its commitment to customer satisfaction and ingenuity. Faced with a mission-threatening problem, this team in less than two weeks devised a solution that many said would take at least a month to achieve.
 In addition to saving the launch and the year's launch schedule, the team transferred the majority of the booster propulsion checkouts from the launch pad to off-pad test facilities, saving McDonnell Douglas Aerospace time and money.
