McDonnell Douglas (MDC) MD-95 vice-president and programme manager John Wolf has left to become programme manager of Teledesic, a new Washington- based company created by Microsoft owner Bill Gates and cellular phone pioneer Craig McCaw, to "-develop a global broad band 'internet in the sky' using low Earth-orbit satellites." A long-time employee at MDC, Wolf missed becoming Douglas president when Mike Sears was appointed last April. James Phillips, previously vice-president deputy general manager of the MD-95, succeeds Wolf.
