Boeing plans Decatur job cuts – Air Force penalty costs 100 positions in Delta program, Huntsville Times

“Boeing officials blamed the drop in production on the suspension of the Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle program. In July 2003, the Air Force stripped Boeing of seven satellite launches worth $1 billion, giving them to Boeing’s competitor, Lockheed Martin Corp., which makes the Atlas V rocket. The contract shift came after Boeing admitted two of its employees took documents from the Lockheed Martin Atlas V program.”
