A tribute to 100 years of Boeing and its aircraft
The publishers of Boeing: Unseen Images from the Archives have scoured archives round the world to create a unique book packed with rare and previously unseen images that complement acclaimed aviation journalist Bruce Hales-Dutton's text. Boeing is perhaps the most important manufacturer and designer of aircraft ever and the most iconic name in the history of aviation. From a small boat factory in Seattle, the legendary "Red Barn," 100 years ago to the giant aviation manufacturing business of today, Boeing has built and maintained an unrivaled reputation for building airliners, bombers, fighters, flying boats, trainers, helicopters, and more recently spacecraft and missiles. It was aircraft such as the P.26 Peashooter, Stratoliner, and Clipper flying boat that created the company's pre-war reputation; the classic B-17 and B-29 bombers that made Boeing one of the biggest wartime contributors to the US war effort; the unique shape of the Stratocruiser that returned the company to the forefront of the commercial aviation business in the immediate post-war years; the hugely successful B-52 bomber and 707, 727, 737, and 747 airliners that gave Boeing the lead in jet aviation; and the recent array of world beating aircraft such as the Chinook helicopter, 787 Dreamliner, Super Hornet, and C-17 Globemaster military transport that have maintained the company's position well into the 21st Century.
