100 years of Boeing
Boeing celebrates its 100th anniversary since its foundation in 1916. From its first design of a small bi-plane, the Boeing company evolved into one of the giants of the aerospace industry. Important milestones in Boeing’s history are the Boeing 247 which was the first modern passenger airliner, the B-52 Stratofortress, the famous 747 “Jumbo Jet” and of course, today’s state-of-the art composite-bodied 787 Dreamliner. Ultra Controls celebrates Boeing’s anniversary as the supplier of the 787’s electro-thermal Wing Ice Protection System, which is an enabling technology for the innovative bleedless engine design.
