    I feel sorry for the employees involved. This seems unusual for a company to layoff employees prior to a sale transfer.

    No... this is typical of Boeing ramping up and down. Nothing more. If they get another large project, they'll hire back just as many or more.

    Looks like Onex is buying the plants. Boeing employees are encouraged to apply for work at those plants.

    Onex has a company that does aerospace design and manufacturing:

    Looks like maybe Boeing is just "outsourcing" some of the aircraft assembly to them?
