Boeing plans to celebrate its 100th anniversary as part of the Farnborough International Airshow, where it will launch the second century of aerospace leadership in the industry.
The company has planned flight displays for 737 MAX and 787-9 Dreamliner. The event will also include demonstration flights of P-8A and F/A-18F aircrafts. The overall pavilion will include features from the past 100 years of Boeing’s technological milestones.
The 737 MAX 8 will mark the beginning of Boeing’s next 100 years. This first jetliner will be delivered ahead of schedule in 2017. In addition, the 787-9 Dreamliner will be sent to the biggest airline in Japan, ANA. This is the first time that a Japanese airline will use an airplane was part of the Farnborough Airshow.
The final assembly plant for the 787-9 Dreamliner is located in North Charleston, North Carolina.
Other aircrafts on display include an innovative CargoLogicAir 747-8 Freighter. P-8A, a multi-mission aircraft, is the military derivative of Boeing’s Next-Generation 747-800. It offers progressive anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare capabilities. This aircraft will be on display with the multi-role F/A-18F Super Hornet fighter and the F-15E Strike Eagle.
The special pavilion will also include interactive displays focused on Boeing’s history, current activities, and future plans. There will be kiosks available so that people can access digitally archived “Aviation Week & Space Technology” issues; the publication is also celebrating its 100th anniversary.
The Farnborough International Airshow will take place in Farnborough, United Kingdom, from July 11-17.
