Exclusive outtakes from industry leaders
Boeing Defense, Space and Security President and CEO Dennis Muilenburg speaks eloquently about defense cycles, but did you know that he is something of a cyclist who typically rides about 100 miles a week?
The give away was the glowing tan he was sporting when speaking at the Reuters Aerospace and Defense Summit.
“I’m an avid bicyclist so I catch some sun while I’m out bicycling,” he said.
Muilenburg doesn’t bike to work but he goes for a spin on the weekend and has a few bicycles parked in his garage. His favorite is a Trek 5900, which other cycling aficianados say is lightweight and speedy.
For some fans, Boeing’s first test flight of its new 787 Dreamliner this week was apparently a virtual postcard.
The aerospace company says people sent about 25,000 postcards electronically of the lightweight commercial plane made primarily from carbon-based plastics and titanium.
