Description

Founded in 1916, Boeing Commercial Airplanes is the premier aircraft builder in the USA and one of the biggest aerospace constructors in the world. To the man in the street Boeing is inextricably linked with some of the greatest names in aircraft design and construction: the B-17 Flying Fortress bomber, the 707 (the USA's first commercial jet airliner), the revolutionary 747 'jumbo jet' and the massive B-52 bomber. This comprehensive and handsomely illustrated history of the 'plane builder from Seattle' includes details of every aircraft it has ever built, together with data charts and informative text boxes.show more
