With the launch of a new external website, people from around the world can see and explore the home of the 737 — Boeing’s site in Renton, Wash.

Incredible: The story of the Boeing Renton Site is a behind-the-scenes look at the innovative workforce and revolutionary assembly line in Renton responsible for shaping air travel and the aviation industry as the world knows it today. The online experience includes:

  • An interactive tour with 360-degree views of the factory and flight line, where 737s make their first flights before entering service with airlines around the world.
  • Video “hot spots” that bring to life innovations and improvements developed in the Renton factory since it began operations in 1942.
  • Historical images from major site milestones, including first flights of military and commercial airplanes built since World War II.
  • Image comparison sliders of the Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX flight decks and engines.

"We’ve never seen the factory this way before,” said Marty Chamberlin, vice president of 737 Manufacturing Operations. “I am so proud to work here and excited to highlight more of our amazing production system and employees.”

The interactive experience will expand with additional video hot spots, including those based on employee suggestions.

For the best viewing experience, use Firefox or Chrome on a desktop computer and “landscape” mode on a mobile device.
