In addition, Boeing featured the industry' s most complete commercial airplane product line in a series of graphic panels, plasma screens and models.
The exhibit included the entire family of the best-selling single-aisle airplane, the 737, featuring the newest member to the family -- the 737-900ER; the passenger-preferred 777 family, which is complementary in range and efficiency to the 787 Dreamliner; and the 747, the most recognized airplane in the world. The new 747 Advanced passenger and freighter models also were displayed at the Expo.
