Boeing

Out of Sight

It was 1956, and my grandfather was stationed in Washington for the Army. He was once driving by the Boeing factory, and he saw this weird plane fly overhead. When he got to where he was stationed, he called up his friend who worked for Boeing, asking him what plane he saw. His friend then told him that they were testing a new jet aircraft.

Little did he know that the new jet he saw was the 707, as his friend later told him.
