*The reclassification of costs for the first three 787 flight test airplanes from program inventory to R&D expense reduced 2009 operating earnings by USD2.7 billion. In 2008, revenue was reduced by an estimated USD6.4 billion due to a labor strike; operating earnings in 2008 were reduced by USD2.8 billion primarily due to a labor strike and higher costs on 747.

Boeing: "We put a strong finish on 2009 by getting the 787 in the air and generating solid core operating performance across the company. Focus areas for 2010 are to continue our strong operational performance, certify and deliver the 787 and 747-8, and further reposition our defense, space and security business. While the challenges ahead are significant, I believe we have the people and the resources we need to be successful and to begin consistently delivering on this company's great potential,” Jim McNerney, Chairman, President & CEO.
