Book Signing: Boeing: The First Century and Beyond (2nd Ed.)
Time: Saturday, July 7, 2007 - 11:00am - 4:30pm
The new edition of the history of Boeing features four new chapters that cover topics such as the rise of Airbus as a competitor and the emergence of the 787 Dreamliner. These new chapters augment Boeing's history from its founding in 1916. Author Eugene Bauer worked in engineering and sales during the company's most exciting years. It is a tale of the vision of aviation pioneers, such as Bill Boeing and Donald Douglas; the triumphs of innovation--from early monoplanes to the Apollo Space Program and the 21st century Joint Strike Fighter; and an unblinking look at the industry, from the struggles of a fledgling enterprise to the boom and bust business cycles of the jet age. Eugene Bauer will be in the Museum Lobby to autograph copies of his book.
