Tex Boullioun dies aged 87

Ernest Herman “Tex” Boullioun, who worked for Boeing for 44 years, has died aged 87. He joined Boeing in 1940 and worked on the B-17 and B-29 bomber programmes before switching to commercial projects. In 1967, he became vp and gm of the commercial aircraft division, and was president from 1972 to retirement in 1984.

Boullioun earned the nickname Tex when, soon after joining Boeing, he placed a winning bet of a month’s salary that Texas would beat Oregon in a college football game. Boullioun started an aircraft leasing company, Boullioun Aviation Services, after he retired from Boeing. He sold the company in 1994.
