SUMMARY OF INQUIRIES AT BOEING, ST. LOUIS

***** of the Boeing-St. Louis communications department called NIDS Investigator #3. He explained that Boeing-St. Louis does not conduct military aircraft development flight testing at their location or in areas surrounding St. Louis proper. He explained that the facility conducts acceptance testing of newly manufactured (from the assembly line) aircraft during the day at their local commercial airport, whereby new military aircraft are flown from the runway to 15,000 MSL while remaining within the traffic pattern airspace of the airport. This is done per federal/military contract rules to demonstrate that new aircraft perform to specifications before the government accepts them into their inventory. The aircraft are later flown to Air Force bases outside of Missouri after the government accepts them. ****** also stated that Boeing-St. Louis does not conduct any work involving airships (dirigibles or blimps, etc.). He confirmed that there were no Boeing-St. Louis derived aircraft flying around St. Louis and surrounding areas during the early morning (midnight – sunrise) dark hours of January 5, 2000. Two other inquiries by another NIDS investigator to other departments at the Boeing facility essentially confirmed the above information and will not be presented in any more depth.
