The Airborne Surveillance Testbed was a unique, specially
modified Boeing 767 that was a key element of the U.S. Department
of Defense’s Strategic Defense Initiative. The aircraft
was retired in 2003 and recently was dismantled. Yet it generated
knowledge that’s still used by Boeing programs.
Boeing employees in the Seattle area have created the 6
Steps Group Mentoring program. This group provides mentoring
and development opportunities in a fun and low-pressure environment
for employees at any level of experience. This concept is
being replicated in other regions.
