Boeing: Left-behind engineers will innovate

Boeing management’s “engineering work transfer” plans will leave the Puget Sound with an abundance of unused, highly skilled, senior engineering talent [“Boeing CEO defends shifting engineering jobs,” Business/Technology, April 23].

With our concentration of venture dollars, and with the many entrepreneurial leaders spun from our multi-faceted technology economy, it seems only logical that some great aerospace start-ups might be possible here. They would leverage the intelligence, knowledge and experience that these engineers can provide.

I believe Boeing’s blunder will be our region’s blessing. It’s only a matter of time before we see nimble new companies in our region, pushing the envelope in drone technologies, private space exploration, for example.

Anthony Claiborne, Bellevue
