Forgotten Gent: Boeing Boys

Boeing Boy – “Back in the days when calling a person “air-minded” implied the literal connotation” – The Washington Alumnus

We’re not into politics, but we do find Obama’s visit to the Boeing factory in Everett, Washington on 17 February 2012 particularly noteworthy.  Why? Because airplanes in our books are serious business. We here at Forgotten Gent are Boeing Boys, even when it comes down to planning our flight itineraries.  The Queen (747), the Triple (777), the Baby (737), and the Dream (787) all hold a special place in our hearts.

Business is booming for Boeing, and that’s a good thing for many reasons.  Fundamentally, Boeing aircraft are the foremost symbol that ‘Made in America’ still has importance.
