As part of the rollout celebration of Boeing's new 787 on Sunday July 8 (7/8/7--get it?), the airplane manufacturer, a day earlier, gathered an example of all their commercial aircraft that begin with the number seven. (Well, almost all, they left out the Boeing 720, and obviously, the 787, which hasn't flown yet.) The airccraft began arriving at Boeing Field with the 707 at 7:07 p.m., and on hand were a 707, 717, 727, 737, 747, 757, 767, and 777. Click here
for a photo at boeing.com, and here is a report from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer
and a feature story
from the paper. In addition, here is a link
to an additional ground view from Airliners.net.
Although one of our aircraft wasn't in the lineup, we are one of Boeing's biggest Customers. We obviously fly 737s, but which is the other Boeing type respresented in the line that has flown with Southwest Airlines?
