Happy 100th Birthday Boeing

In 1916, Boeing delivered its first airplane, the Boeing B&W. 100 years later they’ve produced and delivered tens of thousands of airplanes, and nearly 10,000 of the 737 alone. We took a few family portraits to see how many Boeing aircraft are up in the air today. Happy 100th Birthday Boeing!
