The white building in the background (2-25) is the last building upgrade of the Corporate Headquarters before the Headquarters was moved to Chicago. The historic hanger left is (2-40). As a Boeing Cable and Wire Design Engineer, I was part of the 2-25 upgrade. I remember the tunnels under 2-40 which doubled as storage area for artifacts. I was also the Data Wiring Engineer for new buildings 2-22, 2-122/123, and 3-801. The BOUWMAN BOX was designed especially for 2-122. Building 3-390 was a favorite building, where I placed the 1st fiberoptic cable to the 1st "777" testing connection. I also worked on B-29 Fi Fi. Vern Bouwman 1991-2000
