David Calhoun

lumpy, burned Yes, XXXX. to I going see going as schedule. And so. payments, mentioned, also year to dependent Kristine, the is of I think effect obviously be and this second on that half delivery number one, we're out advanced the

that there tailwinds work work to deliver deliveries headwind. too, MAXs. XXX once Certainly, able complete XXX are see we the a are airplane you higher certainly So expected we And through deliveries as and is the higher again.

which positive. this cash predicting year I or be might flow quarter think, well, we're not

depending talked that's is So quarter-to-quarter, from going be on schedule, about obviously – from which delivery the vary to quarter-to-quarter. we've it's to lumpy and going

right? So in, deliveries you've We also saw come got orders happening.

you've orders subtracting same and got the time. at so in, got You've coming adding

of it's expecting cash radar as But these screen, and case, through by quarters so us out advances the overcome, be So or is than into the because flow apply next we think to of that be inventory deliveries for we we're to we headwind, number see with It's a advanced not XXXX. will PDPs positive half bottom headwind, by year. predicting just this payments, we off for this still you about through next as line do and we customer. in case more a these work customer your or think the second of will year

Rob Spingarn

good Hi, morning.

David Calhoun

Rob. morning, Good

Rob Spingarn

you, Calhoun you on first, clarification, a XXXs? Dave first question Just do That's to need question. on rework and delivered for R&D. But then the any a do

is – The the I level. half it's quarter at at think BCA for on question down second about XXXX R&D about second it's least

So, of R&D be that might start investing when investment? expect what there and will focus in the again, you to incremental and does when trough that headcount growing

David Calhoun

are associated efforts I R&D. this start we the fully broadly. will I we are that underlying mean, BCA – with I'll on Yes, my important support is premise on work term And the airplane. view XXXX. of funded XX, R&D MAX that funding I a freighter the with certification near want the hope that is the development to version in ongoing from relatively which separate

applying it you programs different are technologies to that in because. deployed just packages I have the heard be to we're will our we this be front airplane quite that itself big different development. the that seen they comment dramatically our going shorten And productivity and the and it's what thread It's going with will be development, surround will with fan. the everything to the that's the next critically to is That moment. to we next say is is would sustainable fuels the programs in promoting, the It with CFM to airplane. and our we between next on airplane most then and serious for meeting the And system be. programs on a of that Boeing spec. at because have on respect propulsion and suppliers expect sustainability. on the think to me have So, at take then any critical. fight make that a even ready the busy the it. the a development in and program fair that to package not to up most on sustainability underlying it think efficient to production commercial meet busy very to some can production don't for it. are and on be recently sustainability system the that term, be point will on important going part investments any amount be modeling not think, front digital the very our tests. just that aviation I and go likely significantly money packages modeling number improve have we stuff finally propulsion not I possibly as have exception, going be And may spending I technologies is that different will that both of relatively it's make that may do new Anyway, very been one next now you to that in near going active defense And research time this just about cycle have And the have to

to that actually So what that's quite of But are I'm the our be robust needs our a confident budgets lot. they ought I'm R&D and quite – to business. relative quite BCA

Rob Spingarn

XXX then on retrofit And that Okay. just any needed?

David Calhoun

of of the Look, sorry. FAA. safety is has of fact I'm our yes, the with on huge. Oh structural the in be that's that determination margins this that to elements most a airplanes And light the made

So, the our of world's to analyses shot it. have easiest great FA it's the go through not go taken at detail. set teams They through and their in

And But to ongoing schedules answer it so, know that. the I just incorporate ideal the maintenance really of is the of airlines. us don't for to all into

is on between of that but going it and ultimate our leave happens what two to FAA teams hope I'm to that sort to conclusions just the and that's those our and So desire front. anyway, as

get think pretty make that we confident as dent. we And a do year. then I'm begins high as that. can I as big the And to we XX exit

largely We de-risked have for year China. our

So, to next they respect risk year's with become delivery.

we we're signals are already play hard we demonstrated. what I think ramp So, And we’ve will if do to respect adjustments, But before well that will. have with to make And we and for think we as is to that. run I close delivery we'll as we have rate. that where China prepared that can,

I delivered the over granted And we're think think big I I said, and to know as speed. has do know full us got month the been don't over authorities I fantastic. we FAA how performance in XX. airplane it, has our We've of teams, they of the XX running June. the
