From the 1940s to the 1960s, the company was the pre-eminent producer of bombers. Then, Douglas was the dominant builder of airliners, as well as attack aircraft, while McDonnell was rivalling North American as the leading manufacturer of fighters. Boeing today is a combination of all four companies, plus the helicopter and satellite heritage of Hughes. It has been an interesting journey.</p> <p>Beginnings</p> <p>William Boeing's first aircraft, the B&amp;W seaplane, flew in 1916 and his company, Pacific Aero Products, was renamed Boeing Airplane a year later. Its first contract came from the US Navy, for 50 Model C seaplane trainers. Donald Douglas's first aircraft, the Cloudster, flew in 1921. It was followed by the DT torpedo bomber for the US Navy. Douglas World Cruisers - modified DTs - flew round the world in 1923http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Boeings-new-course-Ten-decades-of-Boeing-167250/
