In 1965 Joe Sutter joined the Boeing design team looking for a new ship. In 1970 Pan AM launched Clipper Victor at Washington Dulles International airport. The Original Jumbo Jet, The Queen of the Skies took to the air. The first wide body has a range of over 8,000 miles, can be configured to carry over 650 passengers and can reach a top speed of mach .85 (570 MPH). The first 1,000 were in service by 1993 and while originally expected to be obsolete after the first 400 there were orders for almost 500 more. It even had a spiral staircase. And now there one parked on NASA Road 1. The big pieces anyway.
