A pet peeve of mine -- It seems no one refers to airplanes as airplanes any
more,; its always aircraft.
I believe there is no Boeing Aircraft Company; There is The Boeing Company
with its divisions i.e.
Boeing Commercial Airplance Company, etc.

Darn, I was all set to join BEARS (Boeing Employees Amateur Radio Service)
in order to use their crane free of charge and then discovered that this
posting refers to Boeings' acquired  McDonnell
(sp?) plant in St. Louis.  Sounds like quite a club there!
