49. Well, yes - their headquarters
are in Chicago but there are still plants in Everett, Renton, Seattle and Kent that I know of.

it is so sad - my dad would be so sad to see what is going on. he started when Boeing was still making furniture downstairs and designing planes in the loft. Everyone carried the immense responsibility of keeping the flying public safe. I cannot imagine that the outsourced facilities feel the weight of that concern.
