Boeing Celebrates 100 Years

The San Diego Air & Space Museum congratulates Boeing in celebrating 100 years as one of the world’s aircraft and aerospace pioneers.

As stated on Boeing’s 100 th Centennial page, in those 100 years, “humans went from walking on Earth to walking on the moon. They went from riding horses to flying jet airplanes. With each decade, aviation technology crossed another frontier, and, with each crossing, the world changed.”

Throughout this remarkable journey, Boeing led the way.
