Oops: Pro-Boeing ad in Seattle uses Airbus plane

Thu., Nov. 21, 2013, 7:31 a.m.

SEATTLE — There was one thing wrong in a full-page ad in The Seattle Times urging state lawmakers to pass a transportation package aimed at persuading Boeing to build the new 777X in Washington.

The headline Wednesday read “The Future of Washington,” but the photo was of an Airbus jetliner, not a Boeing.

The ad was placed by the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, which is part of the Aerospace Partnership of business, labor and economic development groups. A chamber spokeswoman, Terri Hiroshima, told The Seattle Times, “It’s an embarrassing, cringe-worthy error.”
