The Moscow connection

The Moscow connectionLocated near the heart of Moscow, the Boeing Design Center is a busy node in the Commercial Airplanes engineering network.

Here, engineers are providing detail design on the new 787 Dreamliner, including the nose and forward structure (Section 41), some tooling and ground support equipment, and systems installations. As a supplier to Spirit Aerosystems (formerly Boeing's Commercial Airplanes operation in Wichita, Kan.), the BDC was a competitive factor in Spirit's successful bid for its 787 Dreamliner work package. Russian engineers also are producing nearly one-third of the structures drawings for the 747 Large Cargo Freighter, an airplane needed to support 787 production. Still others work on design changes to improve the quality or ease of manufacturing of the existing product line.

Teammates from afarEmployees at the Boeing Design Center in Russia may be 5,000 miles away from their American counterparts. But through modern communication tools, they're supporting Commercial Airplanes programs by providing critical know-how. Here's a look at some of the people who work at the BDC.
