Mayor Foster’s Statement on Boeing’s C-17

Statement from Mayor Bob Foster on Boeing’s announcement to end C-17 line


“While not unexpected, today’s announcement closes the chapter on production of a remarkable aircraft. As work slowed over the last several years, we worked side by side with Boeing to extend the C-17 line for a seven additional years. There’s a sense of sadness to see the end of an institution, but Boeing has grown its commercial aircraft work and announced an engineering design center over the past few years that solidifies the Company’s commitment in Long Beach.”
