"What do I know about branding, maybe nothing (but I did become President!)... But again, what the hell do I know?"

What do I know about branding, maybe nothing (but I did become President!), but if I were Boeing, I would FIX the Boeing 737 MAX, add some additional great features, & REBRAND the plane with a new name.No product has suffered like this one. But again, what the hell do I know? — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 15, 2019 I'm giving this my "modesty" tag even though it's jocular modesty. I think the rhetorical use of modesty is interesting coming from Trump, whose antagonists love to pre...

B-17 Flying Fortress

The B-17 Flying Fortress is a success story born from disaster. In fact, it could be argued no other aircraft has had a more horrible first impression, especially for a machine that would eventually revolutionize American aviation history in more ways than one. In 1934, during the golden age of flight and with a dire need for a long-range bomber capability, the Army Air Corps issued a multi-million dollar competition to the aircraft manufacturers Boeing, Martin and Douglas. They were to produce ...

HS2’s friends in the north should take a closer look | Letters

Prof Paul Salveson supports high-speed rail but does not believe the scheme represents value for money, Andrew Pendleton says it will deepen the existing regional divide, while John O’Dwyer thinks it is the wrong business modelAs a contributor to the New Economics Foundation report (Scrap HS2 and pour £56bn into regions, says thinktank, 20 March) and someone who has lived and worked all his life in the north, I think the response from some of the northern city leaders to the report is misplaced ...

The Trump Administration’s Relationship With Boeing Is Under Scrutiny After Crashes

Patrick Shanahan, Acting Secretary of Defense, told Congress that he welcomes an inspector general investigation into whether he violated any ethics rules by promoting Boeing Co. products while serving in the Trump Administration. Shanahan, who came to the Pentagon after spending more than three decades at Boeing, has routinely fended off questions about potential conflicts…

"Boeing executives sat down last November with pilots at the Allied Pilots Association’s low-slung brick headquarters in Fort Worth."

"Tensions were running high. One of Boeing’s new jets — hailed by the company as an even more reliable version of Boeing’s stalwart 737 — had crashed into the ocean off Indonesia shortly after takeoff, killing all 189 people on board the flight operated by Lion Air. After the crash, Boeing issued a bulletin disclosing that this line of planes, known as the 737 Max 8, was equipped with a new type of software as part of the plane’s automated functions. Some pilots were furious that they were not t...

Boeing’s ‘Wingman’ drone buddies up with pilot-flown jets

It’s already tomorrow in Australia, seemingly in more ways than one. It’s the 27th already, yes, but they’re also working in putting together AI-flown companion jets for their fighters. Why didn’t we think of that? It’s a Boeing Australia joint, but maybe they’ll contract out to the U.S. facilities and we can snake one off the line. I know a guy. The aircraft, currently in development but scheduled for first flight in 2020, is meant to be a loyal wingman to pilots flying military missions — as y...

When the rumor mill creates a sexually hostile work environment

Just in time for Valentine's Day, I bring you the story of a employee rumored to be sleeping with her boss to get a promotion. She wasn't, but the workplace rumor mill sure thought she was.

She received six promotions during her first 15 months of employment, ultimately to the position of Assistant Operations Manager. Two weeks after her final promotion, Parker learned that "certain male employees were ...

Joke: What do you call a claim without a transition phrase?

"Trump’s use of Air Force One is raising questions about the ethics and protocol of using a military asset for political purposes."

"But ethics experts said there is no law preventing Trump from campaigning within view of the plane. And they note that the president, as well as the vice president, is exempt from the Hatch Act, which bars federal employees from engaging in political activity. 'It’s a question of appearance,' said Richard W. Painter, ethics czar in the Bush White House and an outspoken critic of Trump’s ethics practices. 'It’s highly inappropriate, but there’s nobody who can go sanction him for standing in fron...

Tactile History at Naval Aviation Museum

A lot has changed since I last visited the National Museum of Naval Aviation 46 years ago, when I was a student at the Naval Schools of Photography that once called the Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, home. The photo school, and the occupational rating itself, are no more. The Navy merged four jobs—photographer’s mate, illustrator draftsman, lithographer, and journalist—into a new Mass Communication Specialist designation in 2006, and the classic white structure that was its home became t...

NLRB clarifies its new employee handbook rules

Late last year, in Boeing Co., the NLRB rewrote more than a decade of precedent by overturning its Lutheran Heritage standard regarding when facially neutral employment policies violate the rights of employees to engage in concerted activity protected by section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act. The Board scrapped Lutheran Heritage‘s “reasonably construe” test (a work rule violates section 7 if an employee could “reasonably construe” an infringement of their section 7 rights) with a te...

B-52H Stratofortress

Big Moves for NLRB Mean Big Shifts for All Employers

My colleague, Jarad Lucan, returns today with a very special post on a ground-breaking week at the NLRB.  For Connecticut employers, the decisions change a lot of what has been going on at the NLRB for the last several years.   Back in January of 2013, I wrote an article for the Connecticut Law Tribune entitled “For the NLRB, a December to Remember,” which you can read here if you are interested . In that article, I discussed a slew of Obama Administration Labor Board decisions that were handed ...

NLRB restores sanity to its rules on employee handbooks and joint employment

Formation of Friendship

In the summer of 2008, on a lush grass field in Bealeton, Virginia, Sue Tucker Brander approached the blue and yellow plane of her new friend, civilian pilot and Air Force Reservist David Brown. In her hand was a framed black and white photograph. The photo showed a young man wearing a leather helmet and goggles in the rear cockpit of a biplane, his head down performing his preflight checks. At the bottom of the frame was written “Al Tucker, First Solo -1942.” Brander pointed to Brown’s plane an...
