Book Description

25 Oct 2010

In the early years of the twentieth century, William Edward Boeing summed up his new company’s mission: "To let no new improvement in flying and flying equipment pass us by." And sure enough, in the century since, nothing and no one has outflown Boeing. The Story of the Boeing Company, the tale of the plane-maker to the world, unfolds on a fittingly grand scale in this book that is at once the history of one company and the story of an industry.

Lavishly illustrated, this book showcases historic aircraft that made the company’s name—the B-17 Flying Fortress, the B-29 Stratofortress of World War II, and the B-52 Superfortress that still soldiers on over 50 years after its debut to the 707 jetliner that revolutionized commercial flight and the mammoth 747. Fully updated, it includes the 787 Dreamliner, Airborne Laser Testbed (ALTB), and EA-18G Airborne Electronic Attack Aircraft.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boeing 16 Jan 2012
By Badbrad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a very thorough and accurate look at the Boeing organization. It is a must read for those at all interested in the history of this ground breaking company. My Great Uncle was Bill Boeings private pilot for a number of years so I was extremely interested in learning more. You'd think that there would be more book about Bill Boeing and his company or that more would be taught in the Schools.

This is a must have for any Boeing and/or aviation enthusiast. The Story of the Boeing Company is loaded with pictures and it sets readers through each plane that was built and developed from the founding in 1916 through acquisitions to present day.
