Item 8.01 Other Events.

On April 25, 2007, Boeing publicly announced by means of a press release its first quarter 2007 financial results, some of which relate to BCC. The information relevant to BCC is as follows:

Boeing Capital Corporation

BCC increased pre-tax earnings to $73 million on continued improvement in aircraft valuations, while revenues declined consistent with the portfolio (Table 6).

   2007    2006   


   $ 213    $ 237    (10)%

Pre-Tax Income

   $ 73    $ 70    4%

BCC’s portfolio balance at the end of the first quarter was $7.9 billion, down from $8.0 billion at the end of the fourth quarter of 2006 and $9.0 billion a year ago on normal portfolio run-off, asset sales and depreciation. BCC contributed $173 million in cash to Boeing (dividends and return of capital) during the quarter. BCC’s quarter-end debt balance (excluding intercompany borrowings) decreased to $4.8 billion from the year-end balance of $5.6 billion due to the repayment of 14 percent of its outstanding debt during the quarter as $0.8 billion of long-term debt matured. As a result, BCC’s debt-to-equity ratio remained steady at 5.0-to-1.

BCC’s outlook is set forth in the table below (Table 7):
