Name That Plane!

Boeing Wants to Know Your Best Ideas

Boeing is getting the general public involved and enthused with their 7E7. It's a new marketing angle, departing from the company's usual focus on selling to airlines.

The traditional Boeing model was called, "push," in that the manufacturer built what the airlines indicated they wanted, and then offered it to the airlines.
