Boeing -- On Your Coffee Table

Slick Book Full of Historic Photos, Information

Boeing Stores AGS BookWorks have released The Story of The Boeing Company, the first complete, full-color coffee-table book chronicling the history of the world’s leading aerospace company.

The book details the stories of the companies that today make up today's Boeing -- Boeing, Douglas, McDonnell, North American Aviation, and Hughes Space & Communications -- beginning with the birth of the company in 1916, and continuing through almost nine decades of innovation in commercial, defense and space flight. Nearly 300 pages of exhaustively researched text and rare archival photographs tell the remarkable saga of the people and products that built a company that is still exploring new frontiers.

Written by renowned aviation author Bill Yenne, The Story of The Boeing Company contains many never-before-seen photographs from company archives. The story of Boeing mirrors the story of flight, and the company has been responsible for a Who’s Who of aviation achievements, including the Boeing B-17, B-29, 707 and 747; the Douglas World Cruisers and DC-3; the McDonnell F-4 Phantom II; the North American P-51; and the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo spacecraft.

Yenne is a San Francisco-based author of more than three dozen books on aviation and other historical topics. He previously authored highly-regarded histories of Boeing, North American and McDonnell Douglas.

The Story of The Boeing Company is distributed exclusively by Boeing Stores, Inc. The 11- by 11-inch, 288-page hardbound book contains more than 300 photographs and illustrations. The book (ISBN 0-9727382-2-3) retails for $45.00 [It's $40.50 until the end of July --ed].
