Why BAE-EADS merger is double troublefor Boeing
 The potential pairing of a top Boeing partner with its fiercest competitor shows howdeeply the deal could disrupt the complex relationships in the aerospace anddefense industriesAt an awards ceremony in April,BoeingCo honored 14 "suppliers of the year."Prominent among them:BAE Systems Plc, the British arms maker now in talks tomerge with Boeing's biggest civilian rival,EADS, maker of Airbusjets.

That's very unique," said one industry executive, who declined tospeak publicly because it was unclear how the merger would be constructed.
