Imagine the possibilities…..

So the answer to last weeks quiz question was….drum roll please…the first flight of the Boeing 707 took place on December 20th, 1957! Wow, that is almost 45 years ago! Since that historic commercial aviation milestone, we have come a long way. Advancements over the years have included the introduction of the engine bypass fan (the big blades in front of all airline engines), composite tail designs (AKA the 777 tail) and the first airplanes to be designed completely by computer. These are certainly some remarkable achievements.

With the dawn of the 787 there is no telling what is in store for us. Just image what we might be able to see in the future….
