The Centennial

Thank you for Celebrating our Centennial with us!

Since July 15, 1916, we’ve been making the impossible, possible. From producing a single canvas-and-wood airplane to transforming how we fly over oceans and into the stars, The Boeing Company has become the world's largest aerospace company. And we're just getting started.

Thank you for making 2016 unforgettable with events, activities and commemorations that celebrated not only our first century of innovation, but also the people and moments that inspire us to live by our founder Bill Boeing's philosophy -- "build something better."

We're writing our next century's history. Come along for a breathtaking flight.

    Boeing History

    During the past 100 years, humans went from walking on Earth to walking on the moon. They went from riding horses to flying jet airplanes. With each decade, aviation technology crossed another frontier, and, with each crossing, the world changed. Browse the products from Boeing and its heritage companies that crossed those frontiers: the hundreds of passenger airplanes, military aircraft, space capsules, rockets and more. View biographies of the presidents and chief executive officers of Boeing and its heritage companies, such as McDonnell Douglas, North American Aviation, Hughes, Jeppesen and Stearman.
