    No relation to Gary Condit
    He married a first cousin, Jan Condit.
    He has a reputation of being a womanizer and used company funds for personal luxuries.
    He eschewed Boeing's tradition of executive modesty and lived in lavish mansions.
    He resigned as Boeing CEO because of ethical misconduct regarding Pentagon contracts.
    He failed to strengthen Boeing against Airbus and the lousy post-9/11 aviation market.
    He moved Boeing headquarters from its home in Seattle to Chicago.
    Boeing stock tanked in the later part of his term as CEO.
    He pretended his resignation was voluntary even though the board of directors forced it.
    He married four times and divorced three times.
    After a bad year in management he told workers: 'I give myself a very poor grade. It happened and so it's my responsibility. There's my F.'
    He was, by all accounts, an exceptionally brilliant engineer (but not a good manager).
    He oversaw the acquisition of McDonnell Douglas and Rockwell Intl.'s aerospace and defense divisions.
    He worked on nearly every Boeing jet ever built.
    He was the first Westerner to earn an engineering doctorate from the Science University of Tokyo (1997).
    His focus on defense projects helped Boeing in recent years.
