Boeing Facility: By Jack Furlow
On December 7th, 2017 I was fortunate enough to partake in the special trip to the Boeing Facility located in North Charleston. When I attended this trip last year, I had a phenomenal experience. The work force, working environment, and overall atmosphere on the Boeing property, is just one to be experienced. My favorite part of the trip is when we are taken out on the balcony that over looks the entire working facility. We get to watch massive Boeing 787 Dream-liners being built right in front of our eyes. Its quite remarkable how an Industry has grown so much to be able to produce 12 commercial airplanes in only 60 days.
Even though during the exercise, my team failed to produce a valid plane, I still enjoyed being at Boeing and hope one day, that I will have the opportunity to maybe even work for Boeing in the future. Thanks to Camden Military Academy and Boeing for putting on a wonderful trip and I look forward to my future visits!
