Flightglobal Lifetime Achievement Award

BOEING’S Joe Sutter (89) collected the inaugural Flightglobal Lifetime Achievement Award at a reception during last week’s Farnborough International Airshow.  "Joe Sutter helped shrink our planet for tens of millions of ordinary travellers," said Murdo Morrison, Editor of Flight International. "More than 40 years on, the Boeing 747 remains a unique and radical design – unmistakable and beautiful, but most importantly, a highly efficient people and cargo mover."  In a postscript to the latest reprint of his excellent book, with the simple title “747”, Sutter writes that just recently he was sitting in the departure lounge at Narita Airport, Tokyo, and in a two-hour period counted 55 Jumbos from more than one dozen airlines.  His thoughts were with his colleagues now no longer with us and how proud they would have been. www.boeing.com/commercial
