This has been a GREAT experience!  I see this as a 'win-win' for all involved. Q-Star builds confidence that if Boeing utilizes a manufacturer's products, they will be available or have a replacement part available both now and in the future.   This implementation has been handled professionally, and in a very timely manner.
