Dennis Muilenburg, chairman
Jessie Hillman writes Muilenberg made the remarks after he met with President-elect Donald Trump at the latter’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida to discuss the Air Force One replacement effort.
The U.S. Air Force announced its selection of Boeing’s 747-8 platform as a basis for the next presidential plane in January and awarded the company a contract in February to help the military branch identify risk reduction strategies for the program.
“We work on Air Force One because it’s important to our country and we’re going to make sure that he gets the best capability and that it’s done affordably,” Muilenberg said.
Mehta reported Trump also began discussions with Lockheed Martin regarding the F-35 program.
