Pro-Boeing ad uses Airbus picture

A pro-Boeing newspaper ad in a Seattle newspaper accidentally featured a picture of an Airbus

A full-page advert in an American newspaper urging lawmakers to pass a package that would persuade Boeing to build its new 777X jet in Washington state accidentally featured a picture of an Airbus.

The ad with the headline The Future of Washington was placed in the Seattle Times by the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, which is part of the Aerospace Partnership of business, labour and economic development groups.

Chamber spokeswoman Terri Hiroshima told the paper: "It's an embarrassing, cringe-worthy error."
