Boeing

The Family Name's on Every Plane

By Nilton Boeing

I am a Boeing. My grandparents came to Brazil in 1865, directly from Germany. Some of my relatives that studied the genealogical tree of our family say that at the same time, some Boeings emigrated to the United States of America.

I believe that those "relatives" were the men that initiated the glorious trajectory of The Boeing Company.

As a passenger I would rather choose Boeing airplanes, because they fly softly.

When I was just a little boy and knew the Boeing planes, I intended to go to Seattle someday to take a little plane as part of my heritage.

Now I am 76 years old and am very proud of my name flying the skies.
