One month after the start of a Machinists union strike, Boeing has reported a nosedive in deliveries of commercial aircraft.

Chicago-based Boeing reported 84 737s, 747s, 767s and 777s were delivered in the third quarter. That’s down from 126 planes in the second quarter and from 109 planes a year ago.

An initial news release from Boeing did not break down the deliveries by month, but the strike that began Sept. 6 is cited in a footnote.

Boeing deliveries were cut to three planes during a 24-day walkout of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers in 2005. The current strike is in its 28th day.
