In 1916, an airplane company was established in the previous Heath Shipyard along the Duwamish River, situated a short distance south of Seattle's Elliott Bay. Work on the first two airplanes was already well underway as the articles of incorporation were begun. The company's diverse crew included men with woodworking skills, women with expertise in sewing fabric, and an American educated Chinese aeronautical engineer named Wong Tsu. A century later, Boeing is synonymous with commercial aviation, military products, and feats in space. John Fredrickson retired as a senior manager of the Boeing Company in 2011 after 36 years of service. He is also the author of Kansas City B-25 Factory and Warbird Factory. The author will be here from 1pm-3pm signing his newest book Boeing - sure to be a great holiday gift!
