After reporting significant losses and delays on major programmes, Boeing has announced the consolidation of its defence divisions.

Boeing’s eight defence divisions will be consolidated into four, the company announced on 17 November alongside a series of executive leadership changes.

Divisions following the consolidation are: 

  • Vertical Lift; 
  • Mobility, Surveillance & Bombers (which will include the KC-46, SAOC, E-7, VC-25B, P-8, bombers, AWACS/AEW&C, 777X components and all executive transport programmes);
