Boeing airliner 7-series lineup at Boeing Field

Boeing 700-series line-up

Just in from Steve Bard: Amid all the 787 roll-out hoopla last weekend, perhaps the coolest event went unnoticed. On Saturday night, Boeing had all of the 787 airline representatives at an event at the Museum of Flight. At 7:07 PM, an Omega Air Refueling Services 707 landed in front of the crowd (after taking off from Paine Field in Everrett). At 7:17, an AirTran 717 landed. This continued until 8:17 when an Air France 777-300ER landed. In the end, the 707, 717, 727, 737, 747, 757, 767, and 777 were lined up nose-to-tail on the taxiway. It is the first time Boeing has had every 7-series airplane in the same place (not counting the 787, which couldn’t make the flight, of course).
Also visible in the picture are various aircraft at the Museum of Flight, including the Concorde, Air Force 1, etc.

Thousands Welcome the 787 Dreamliner

    737 throttle. I would love to visit boeing some day, and get some history of the making. Keep up the good work.
