Biographical/Historical note:
The Boeing Airplane Company was established in 1916 in Seattle, WA. For a short period (1928-34) Boeing was a subsidiary of the United Aircraft and Transport Company (now United Technologies Corporation) but left, with Stearman Aircraft and Boeing Aircraft of Canada, to form a new company under the Boeing name. In 1961 Boeing reorganized and changed its name to The Boeing Company to reflect the broader interests of the company, which contained commercial aircraft, military aircraft, and general aircraft production facilities, as well as rotorcraft and aerospace production components. In 1952 Boeing decided to begin work on a large jet transport, initially designated the Model 367-80, to convince competitors that the project was a reengined C-97 (Model 367) reciprocating engine transport. The "Dash 80" rolled out on 15 May 1954 and first flew 15 July 1954. The first production aircraft, designated Model 707, was delivered to Pan American Airlines in August 1958, followed by others for civil and military (as C-135) use. The 720, a derivative of the 707, followed, as did the 727 short/medium range aircraft (design work from June 1959), 737 short range aircraft (announced February 1965), 747 wide-body long-range aircraft (announced April 1966), 757 advanced short-medium range aircraft (announced early 1978), 767 advanced wide-body medium range aircraft (announced early 1978). Boeing also participated in the abortive United States Supersonic Transport (SST) program of 1963-71.
