This book tells the Boeing story from its beginnings in a Lake Union boathouse, to its present status as the premier builder of commercial aircraft in the world. The book is more than just an airplane book, it is the story of the people who built the company and make it what it is. This is the story, too, of Boeing's other products, from hydrofoils to solar energy, from San Francisco Street cars to the first and only vehicle to have been driven across the surface of the moon. Trace the development from the first Boeing mailplanes to the B-17 Flying Fortress and the B-29 Superfortress of WWII to the first jetliner, the 707, to today's mammoth 777. Also examines Boeing's manufacture of helicopters, hydrofoils, and aerospace technology.
