Don't forget the C-17 static articles in the upper right hand corner.

A few more images.

In order:
A shot showing the old C-17 molds along with an unknown DC-9, MD-80, 90... Or even a 95? Hard for me to tell from that distance.
Old Fly DC Jets sign.
C-17 plant hangar sign.
Charleston C-17 near LGB tower.

Did a little searching and found this article from Boeing regarding what will happen with the Fly DC Jets sign. I was told it was going to be sold off, but not according to this. :)

Quote from: Boeing
Commercial Airplanes presence to continue in Long Beach

Boeing Commercial Airplanes has an important presence in Long Beach, Calif., that will continue after the 717 ceases production in spring 2006: the support for all McDonnell Douglas–heritage in-service airplanes, including the 717.

Managed by Commercial Aviation Services, the support activities include technical customer support, inventory and warranty management, and spares. The CAS Long Beach team also provides technical expertise for freighter conversions and airplane modifications such as avionics and interior upgrades.

The Commercial Airplanes complex in Long Beach consists of the Douglas Center office complex and the 717 program and assembly buildings. Following 717 shutdown activities, the 717 assembly buildings and land will be transitioned to Boeing Realty. However, the Douglas Center office complex will continue to be home to the CAS team.

Boeing and Boeing Realty will ensure that monuments to the Long Beach aircraft-building heritage will be proudly displayed in the Douglas Park development, to be built on previously vacated land, across from the current Commercial Airplanes Long Beach complex. Such visible icons as the large neon "Fly DC Jets" sign are destined to become an integral part of the Douglas Park Community area development.
