Boeing 737 Bronze Antique
The Boeing737 is a short to medium range, single aisle, narrow body jet airliner. Originally developed as a shorter, lower cost twin engine airliner derived from Boeing's 727 and 707, the 737 has nine variants, from the early -100 to the most recent and largest, the -900. Currently series -600 through -900 are being produced.
First envisioned in 1964, the 737 entered service in 1968. Forty years later it has become the most ordered and produced commercial passenger jet in the world. It is Boeing's last surviving narrow-body airliner, sometimes serving markets previously filled by 707, 727, 757, DC-9 and MD-80/90 airliners. Continuously manufactured by Boeing since 1967 with over 8,000 ordered and over 5,700 delivered as of 2008. Over 1,250 737s are airborne at any given time. On average, a 737 departs or lands somewhere every five seconds.
