Because it is such a widely mass produced aircraft, it is also a target for constant aerodynamic improvements. Boeing has looked at everything from the design of the anti-collision lights, to the reduction of small gaps in the airfoil. This has created an aircraft that is extremely aerodynamic and efficient at any task it performs. The 737 was originally created on on May 11 1964, however it wasn’t until November 9th 1964 that production was officially approved.

Sources 1001 Questions Answered About Aviation History by C.H. Hildreth and Bernard C. Nalty and War in the Air 1914-1945 by Williamson Murray will be evaluated during this investigation. B. Summary of Evidence American brothers, Orville and Wilbur Wright largely inspired by German aeronautical engineer Otto Lilienthal, were able to achieve flight with their glider, the Kitty Hawk, in September of 1903 (Bell 13). At the brink of World War I ten years later, aircrafts were light and could only travel short distances because of their small fuel tank (Hildreth 111).
Also, the president and other American representatives are now able to fly to other countries to maintain peace and keeping foreign connections strong. These could not be possible without the relentless pursuit of the desire to attain flight. There were many milestones in creating “the first airplane.” Many inventors like Joseph Michael and Jacques Etienne Montgolfier who started all the talk that flying is actually possible by launching their first successful hot air balloon in 1783. However, the Wright brothers are accredited with the end result of the airplane’s first successful flight. The Wright Brothers invented and did their testing of their engine propelled airplane in Kill Devil Hills and Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.
The gift was a toy helicopter made of bamboo, cork, and paper. “The twin propellers on the helicopter were activated by a twisted rubber band, a type of propulsion popularized by a young Frenchman named Alphonse Penaud.” (Howard, 1987,1998, p. 18) The gift that Wilbur and Orville’s father gave to them was not only a small toy helicopter, it was a spark of many ideas to come in their... ... middle of paper ... ...others got a United States contract for one plane, and with the hope of selling overseas they resumed flying.

Overview The movement of millions of passengers over distances thought impossible decades ago is symbolic of the modern air transportation era that is characterized by speed, comfort and personal convenience. The commerce of aviation, both the operation of commercial aircraft for profit and the development of aeronautical systems, is also an important symbol of national prestige and a powerful economic force. Safety in air transportation is therefore a matter of significant national importance. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) plays a central role in the overall equation of aviation safety. The agency enjoys the reputation of being the foremost independent safety investigative authority in the world.
Most of us see aviation as a means of transportation and an alternate mode of travel. Boeing’s businesses are clearly doing one of the things that core businesses are suppose to do. They are making lots of cash. For many years Boeing has been the leader, earning an average cash flow of a billion dollars or more each year.
