There are a lot of ways to celebrate a century of success, but Boeing really takes the cake. 

From headlining this year’s AirVenture event in Oshkosh to helping South African Airways celebrate their first commercial flights, Boeing is taking its centennial anniversary very seriously…with plenty of ways to celebrate and share the fun.

Experimental Aircraft Association AirVenture Oshkosh 2016

Boeing will provide the star attractions this July at the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture Oshkosh 2016. Allsite is a major partner in the aviation industry, supplying aircraft hangars around the world. We are more than excited to help celebrate all the ways Boeing has touched the lives of people around the world. Here are just a few…

From military aircraft to commercial planes, Boeing has been a leading innovator in this industry since the beginning, when William Boeing filled his first military contract for 50 seaplane trainer Model Cs. They also happen to be one of the country’s largest exporters.

Today, in addition to building commercial and military airliners, Boeing…

  • manufactures GPS satellites
  • partners with the U.S. Missile Defense Agency
  • offers multi-mission aircraft used by the U.S. Airforce
  • plays a key role in the U.S. Space Station
  • is involved with NASA in building the rocket that will be the most powerful ever built

“Boeing Day” at AirVenture this July

Saturday, July 30 has been named “Boeing Day” at AirVenture week, where attendees will join the world’s largest aircraft company in celebrating Boeing’s influence on aviation history over the last 100 years.

It promises to be the best celebration of aviation ever, and it all takes place at the Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. We can’t wait to learn what Boeing has in store for everyone, including a display of vintage biplanes, military aircraft, and huge jumbo jets from Boeing’s history.

Going Green in Johannesburg

Boeing is celebrating in other ways, too. Coinciding with their 100th anniversary will be a joint venture with South African Airways and Mango. Passenger flights powered by biomass will begin to take place with SAA and Mango, South African carriers that use Boeing 737-800s to transport passengers between Johannesburg and Cape Town.

The biomass fuel is from farms in the Limpopo Province, and was certified for the highest sustainability standards. The initiative also helps promote rural development, public health, and employment opportunities in the region.

Allsite Congratulates Boeing on 100 Years of Innovation

We’d like to applaud Boeing for delivering a century of innovation and for helping to ensure we all have a future, too, with projects like the biomass aircraft in South Africa. From the fields of Africa to the outer reaches of space, Boeing is there, leading the way and serving as an example for all of us in the aviation industry.

Here at Allsite, we admire innovation – it’s one of the cornerstones of our business too. We keep a close eye on what is happening in the aviation industry and we understand the importance of protecting aircraft. Our tensioned fabric structures provide a cost-effective solution for FBO, MRO, and storage of airplanes, helicopters, and ground support equipment. Contact us to learn more about the benefits of our aircraft hangars.
