  Boeing 737 Information
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.
Boeing was badly behind however when the 737 program was initiated in 1964, as both of these rivals were already into their flight certification programmes.
Boeing has already hinted that a clean sheet replacement for the 737 (dubbed "Y1") will be the company's next major project after the 787, although it is still unclear if the existing 737 will receive yet one more facelift in the next 7 to 10 years.

 Boeing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Piasecki Helicopter was acquired by Boeing in 1960, and was reorganized as Boeing's Vertol division.
In April 1994, Boeing introduced its most modern commercial jet aircraft, the twin-engine 777, with a seating capacity of between 300 and 400 passengers in a standard three class layout, in between the 767 and the B747.
Boeing is now focused on the newly-launched 787 as a platform of total fleet rejuvenation, which has benefitted from strong sales success at the expense of Airbus' competing offerings.

The Boeing 737 is the smallest member of the Boeing family, that is why she is called "lovingly" also "Baby Boeing".
On the long distances, the Boeing 707 (with four jet-engines) was the undisputed "number one", on the central distances it was the Boeing 727 with her three engines (of which one engine was mounted in the rear).
This version of the Boeing 737 will probably remain the biggest one, because on account of the evacuation possibilities the passenger's number can not be increased any more farther, although from the structure here the trunk could be extended still farther.

 Boeing 737
The heritage of the 737 began in 1965 when Boeing launched this short-range airplane to complement the larger 707 and 727 jetliners.
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.

 the Boeing 737 Rudder Lawsuits
Boeing knew for years that pilots had no way to overcome dangerous rudder problems that could occur while flying 737 jets at low speeds, but waited until after two planes crashed to acknowledge the problem, newly released court documents indicate.
Boeing, while formally accepting the NTSB's rulings, continues to blame the Colorado Springs crash on a freak weather occurrence and the Pittsburgh crash on pilot error.
Boeing and the FAA are studying an NTSB recommendation, issued last March, calling for the 737 rudder to be redesigned so that it is no longer controlled by a single valve.

Boeing announced it was developing a new higher capacity version of the fast selling 737-300 in June 1986.
Although Boeing had initially developed the 180 to 200 seat 757 to replace the successful 727, there still existed a considerable market for a near direct size replacement for the popular trijet.
By developing the 737-400 as a minimum change stretch of the 737-300, Boeing was also able to offer considerable commonality, and thus cost, benefits to operators already with the 737-300, and to a lesser extent, the 737-200 in their fleets.

Because the 737 is designed low to the ground for easy baggage loading and maintenance, and requires no special jetways, Southwest can turn the airplane around — from pulling up at the gate to being ready to leave again — in just 25 minutes.
Boeing configures the 737s to ensure equipment is standard from model to model — important for maintenance crews, cabin attendants and pilots, especially on low-cost operations like Southwest.
Boeing is setting up a separate production line in Renton to build the Navy's 737-based P-8A submarine hunter, scheduled to fly in 2009.

 9-11 Review: UNLIKELY: 'The Pentagon Attack Plane was a Boeing 737 Instead of a Boeing 757'
Of the many theories that someting other than Flight 77 -- a Boeing 757 -- crashed into the Pentagon, the theory that the plane was a Boeing 737 is claimed by its proponents to be more consonant with the pattern of impact damage than would be the crash of a 757.
Moreover, other aspects of the damage, such as to the diesel generator trailer are consistent with a 757 but not a 737.
It is obvious on this diagram that the two engines of a 757-200 are just at the right spacing from the centerline to account for the damage on the generator and on the ventilation structure.

 Boeing Converts 737 Into Bomber
Boeing is gearing up to modify its ubiquitous twin-jet, single-aisle airliner into a Navy patrol bomber called the Multi-Mission Maritime Aircraft, or MMA.
Boeing took a 737 to air stations around the country and Europe to show Navy aviators a twin-jet could do the job -- even on one engine if it had to -- and helped Boeing secure the contract over rival Lockheed Martin, which proposed an updated turboprop plane for the mission.
Boeing's factory there, with space for four production lines, went to two lines because of the worldwide airline downturn.

SINGAPORE Feb 26, 2006 (AP)— Boeing's 737 passenger plane, which has seen deliveries top 5,000 since it entered service 38 years ago, has always been touted by its U.S. makers as the world's most popular commercial jet.
Boeing's only major deal this week came when Indian budget carrier Spicejet ordered 10 737 planes and took an option to order another 10.
"With the 737, even though they've upgraded the length, the avionics, and the wings, the cross-section of the plane remains the same as it was forty years ago," said Andrew Miller, chief executive of the Center for Asia Pacific Aviation, a consultancy based in Sydney.

His major contribution to the 737 project was to use as much of the 727 in the 737, in particular the fuselage cross section.
When the 737 was announced ALPA and the FAA were on the case of the 737 from the outset as the 3 crew issue had still not been resolved.
Boeing began work on the 737-900 in April 1997 which was stretched to compete with the 185/220 seat, Airbus A321.

 AVSIM Boeing 737 Review
The 737 program was launched in February, 1965 as a logical answer to go with the already popular 707 and 727 series.
The problem that Boeing faced with United was that they already had a moderate number of 727's in their fleet.
So, Boeing proposed to United that they take some 727's, and return any extras that they had for the 737 when it was ready.
