The first achievement of the designers was to create two types of seaplane B & W, who were able to take off in the early summer of the year 1916. These machines were set up jointly by the two designers, namely the US Boeing engineer and D. Conrad. A month after the first flying machine designers have organized their data with a company called Pacific Aero Company. But this title lasted only until May 1917 years, after which it was replaced by Boeing Airplane. The big advantage of chief designer Y. Boeing was the fact that he had a great store of knowledge as he graduated from Yale University, and also worked for some time in the forest industry.

Due to this, the company "Boeing" has worked with great productivity, mainly bombers were produced in large quantities. At this period, the plant employs almost only women, since men took an active part in the hostilities. Production of the aircraft was going full swing, every month, the company released 1944 350 more such machines. As for the production, the plants have been camouflaged with greenery, which allowed to protect them from enemy air strikes.
During these years, almost all of the country's aviation enterprises have been merged into one, thus significantly faster and more accurately create combat vehicles. The most famous aircraft company "Boeing" were B-17 Flying and B-29, which were collected simultaneously from several factories.

At this time, it has been designed and manufactured airliner "Boeing 737». It is the most popular among all the jet aircraft designed to carry passengers. More 2013 thousand such cars were built before the year 7,6. Before the year 1969 was ready another passenger liner "Boeing 747». It was the machine with two decks, he had a wide fuselage. All this has made this machine the largest and heaviest in the world, it can carry the greatest number of passengers. Such indicators have held him over 37 years from the date of construction. This record was broken only in the year 2005 A380 type aircraft.
