Forty years ago, Boeing’s marketing team was hard at work making film reels to promote the first flight of the “747 Superjet” for program managers. Forty years later, the 787 Milestones site set up by Boeing is merely the latest [public] evolution of sharing the progress of developing a new jetliner with the world. What follows is a two-part 15-minute movie produced by Boeing communications taking you through the assembly, testing and first flight of RA001. Note the original PTQ for the 747.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Enjoy!
