Boeing 737 At the Gate. Book by Robert W. Tidwell. Squadron Signal Books. Few commercial aircraft have enjoyed a production run that spans more than four decades and service in nearly every nation on Earth. The Boeing 737 has such a track record. Takes the reader on a journey through the continuing story of the 737 from the first aircraft to roll of the production line in the 1960s, to the very latest airframes being delivered to major airlines today. �The book also offers the reader a look at some of the most interesting 737 liveries as well as parts of the aircraft that few people get to see. Also covered are business jets, cargo carriers, and military versions of the 737 that are less familiar even to the thousands of air travelers who have flown aboard this legendary Boeing liner. Illustrated with over 220 photographs; 96 pages.
