The Boeing Model 40 was a United States mail plane that became the first aircraft built by the Boeing company to carry passengers. The airplane weighs 4080 lbs empty and has a gross weight of 6075 lbs. It is 34 ft long and 13 feet tall with a wing span of 44 1/2 feet.
The above pictures were sent to me from "rampie" Kelly Paterson in Calgary.
He used the well known Boeing phrase as his email title: If it ain't Boeing, I ain't going!
Even though I've been flying the Airbus product for nearly 15 years, sometime in the future I'll have to switch camps. While playing Air Canada hockey yesterday, one pilot was spreading some juicy rumours about the Dreamliner. It may be comer sooner than expected because of the newly acquired Boeing plant in Charelston, South Carolina. A rumour...all it takes is a seed and it spreads like wild fire. But I like it just the same.
