  Boeing 737 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 737 was born out of Boeing's need to field a competitor in the short-range, small capacity jetliner market which had been opened up by the BAC 1-11 and the Douglas DC-9.
The 737 was given a hi-tech glass cockpit with LCD screens and digital systems heavily inspired by that used on the 777.
In 2001, the 737 was stretched one more time to create the 737-900, which is in fact longer and carries more passengers than the 707, and steps into the capacity of the 757-200.

 Aviation Resource - 737
In November 1993, the company launched a 'Next Generation' 737 family to build on the 737's extraordinary success and extend the airplane type well into the 21st century.
Like today's 737s, these new family members are offered in multiple sizes, with the 737-600 accommodating 110 to 132 passengers, the 737-700 seating 126 to 149 passengers, the 737-800 capable of carrying 162 to 189 passengers, and the 737-900 seating 177 to 189 passengers.
Upcoming milestones for the Next-Generation 737 include first delivery of the 737-700 to Southwest Airlines in 1997, first delivery of the 737-800 to Hapag-Lloyd in early 1998, and first delivery of the -600 model to SAS in mid-1998.

 Boeing 737 - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The Boeing 737 is a popular short-to-medium range commercial passenger jet aircraft continuously manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes since 1967.
In 2001, the 737 was stretched one last time to create the 737-900, which is in fact longer and carries more passengers than the 707, and steps into the capacity of the 757-200.
With the advent of the 787, it's clear that either a new aircraft for this capacity will be developed or the 737 will receive yet one more facelift in the next 7 to 10 years.

 Planespotters encyclopedia - Boeing 737 series   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Boeing 737 is the most common aircraft in the world, and is also the aircraft with the longest continuous production run, being launched in 1965 and still produced today.
Common to the entire 737 product range is its resemblance of the Airbus A320 series, but it can be easily differentiated by the winglets found on the A320 series (Except early A320-100 aircraft), and by the different tail section.
The 737 may also resemble the 767 and Airbus A310, but as both of these are widebodies, they are easily identified as not being 737s...

 TAHC - TALON AIR 737-400 "Jay Bird"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
In December 1985, Boeing decided to offer a 737 twinjet with a 10-foot (3 m) fuselage stretch that would add three more economy seat rows and two more first class seats, or 21 more two-class passengers when compared with earlier the 737-300.
Boeing engineers had been studying a larger 737 for a number of years -- one with a fuselage lengthened enough to bring capacity to 147 seats in mixed-class service.
Next-Generation 737 designers also drew inspiration from the 777, placing large displays in the flightdeck dashboard and updating the passenger cabin with contoured walls and ceilings that create a spacious feeling and greater stowage capacity than the classic 737s.

 Boeing 737
The total number of orders for the 737 was 978 by mid-1982, and the type is currently being manufactured at the rate of 8 per month.
The 737 fuselage appears short and stubby, due to its large upper-fuselage diameter, which is the same as for the 707 and the 727, and its short length, which is less than for the 707 or the 727.
The short fuselage length of the 737 along with the wide lateral separation of the underwing-mounted engines result in the large vertical tall on the aircraft.
