Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Just like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
We would also like to thank everyone for their contributions in
helping out with info & corrections which are always gratefully
received in keeping the Blog up to date.
With Boeing production rates on the increase looks like 2012 & beyond
will be even busier over the next few years so something to look forward to.
Best Wishes to you all from the
Puget Sound - Boeing Test Flights Blog team
