Boeing's second century

A “Centennial Experience” pavilion celebrating 100 years of aviation technology milestones will be a feature of Boeing’s presence at the Farnborough International Airshow which starts next Monday (11-14 July).

Launching what it calls the Second Century of Aerospace, the company has also scheduled the 737 MAX and B787-9 Dreamliner for flight displays along with the P-8A and F/A-18F.

The 737 MAX, the first jetliner of Boeing’s second century, is making its air show debut. Boeing says it expects to deliver the first MAX 8 in the first half of 2017, ahead of schedule.

A 787-9 Dreamliner to be delivered to Japan’s ANA will also be in the flying display, the first airliner in a Japanese airline livery to participate at Farnborough.

The technology pavilion will have interactive displays showcasing the company’s past, present and future developments. An app called Boeing Innovations, intended for guests to use while visiting the pavilion, is available for download through iTunes and Google Play.

Also as part of its celebration, Boeing is sponsoring the “Above and Beyond” interactive exhibition about flight and space exploration which is open to the public at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich until 29 August.
