Product Details

This incredible model is among the first in the series of Boeing Milestone Series Models. The models, produced by licensed manufacturers, represent some of the most significant aircraft designed and produced since Wright Brothers made their historic flight. In 1903, two events launched the history of modern aviation. The Wright brothers made their first flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, and William Boeing, born Oct. 1, 1881, in Detroit, Michigan, left Yale engineering college for the West Coast. The first Boeing airplane, the B & W (William Boeing and George Westervelt), was completed in June 1916. It was made of wood, linen, and wire. Similar to the Martin trainer that Boeing owned, the B & W had, among other improvements, better pontoons and a more powerful engine. This meticulously hand-crafted wood model, was produced with full cooperation of The Boeing Company. Stand included. 1:32 scale. Length: 13". Wingspan: 20". Made in Philippines.
