DASH 80One Boeing person’s tale of appreciating—
and saying farewell to—the DASH 80

Editor's note: The Boeing 367-80, also known as the Dash 80, recently made its last-ever flight. The historic airplane flew from the Puget Sound area to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, the forthcoming new annex to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. As a prototype jet transport airplane that spurred the development of the Model 707-120, the Dash 80, which first rolled out of the factory in 1954, effectively helped Boeing establish its leadership role in the commercial jet airliner industry.


Something to talk about

Something to talk aboutIn the combined suburban sprawl of California's Los Angeles and Orange counties, some of the toughest community-imposed noise limits are those in effect at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana.

But Boeing customer Midwest Airlines is about to help quiet things down with introduction of 717 service. The carrier recently conducted tests with a new 717 to show the airplane could meet the stringent noise standards.
