Boeing History

Boeing was founded in 1916 in Seattle, Washington by William E. Boeing as the Pacific Aero Products Company.  The company originally produced seaplanes from wood.

In 1917, the company was renamed to the Boeing Airplane Company.  Boeing shipped 2 planes to the US Navy that same year and they ordered 50 more.

In 1919, the Boeing B-1 made its maiden flight.  The plane was designed to carry mail.

In the 1930′s, the company began making its airplanes from metal.  In 1937, Boeing designed the first pressurized cabin transport airplane.

In the 1940s and 1950s, Boeing began heavy production of airplanes for the military, including B-47 and B-52 bombers.

Today, Boeing is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.  The company has several distinct divisions: Commercial, Defense & Space and Engineering & Ops.  They also run a finance division called Boeing Capital.

Regarding the Flight 370 disappearance, I have a suggestion to make planes easier to find. Put a transponder in an upper (detachable) segment of the tail section. The transponder turns on automatically when the plane’s electrical system is activated, and can NOT be turned off manually from the cockpit. The transponder is connected to a generator in the body of the plane, as well as to a smaller, internalized battery or generator located within the tail segment. In the event of an water-crash, the tail is the highest point on the plane. As long as the plane stays afloat, the transponder will send a signal. In the event that the plane sinks, the upper segment of the tail section will disconnect when activated by pressure plates / sensors. The segment will float to the surface, and the transponder (via its internalized generator or battery) will continue to send signals. Dye markers could also be released. Even with current / waves, the dye wouldn’t disperse by much in the few hours it would take to locate the floating transponder.

I along with others are afraid to fly on your products. It seems to me that the flaws in your planes manifest themselves when the units either catch fire, or crash. I have been flying since the Super G Constellation and even back then, we seldom had a plane go missing.
Since your company, Boeing , seems to listen to nobody, maybe you should go back to design 101. Put a GPS locator on the planes especially those that travel long distances over water. If they can locate a person with a phone and my lowly On Star, surely your so called engineers should be able to figure out a system that can find a plane whether in water or on the ground. If you need help from some of your customers, just put out the word, and I’m sure there are some among us that have an idea that would improve the quality of your product.

For a period of time articles have appeared in the media about the problems of the battery catching fire in the large airplane. My neighbor who is retired with the Navy with 20 years of service worked on electronic equipment of airplanes.
He said the battery that is in the plane is different than other batteries. It needs to be in a cold area. otherwise it will get too hot and a fire will start. A cooling system such as simple as a window unit a/c or use the airplane a/c to be directed to the battery itself.

With the pickings at boeing in Washington State tell the people to go back to work or they lose their jobs. Why not move the whole plant down to Smokey Mountain and give these very poor people a job that are Hillbillies. Pay them $ 7.02 a hour and at thanksgiving time give them all big roast a box of mash potatoes and a white cake only. That would be their like the money gave out to all employee in Washington State but you would save more money this way.You do this money ever year. Also at Christmas give them only a bag of oranges and two boxes of candy. I hope you do this. Its time these poor people get good jobs also. This will teach Washington state. The poor people should build the plant pay them $7.46 a hour.

Re: Vancouver, Washington

If Boeing is considering the relocation of certain departments, how about Vancouver, Washington?
Access is easily available to Hwys’ I-5 & I-84; rail exists; as does the Ports of Portland & Vancouver…with,
of course, Portland International Airport 10 minutes away.
Please have the appropriate executive contact Mayor Tim Leavitt [personal 1-360-600-XXXX].
Thank you.
