The Boeing Company is a major aerospace and defense corporation, founded by William E. Boeing in Seattle, Washington and has expanded over the years, merging with McDonnell Douglas in 1997.

Boeing is the largest global aircraft manufacturer by revenue, orders and deliveries, and the third largest aerospace and defense contractor in the world based on defense-related revenue.

During World War II, Boeing built a large number of B-17 and B-29 bombers. In the beginning of March 1944, production had been scaled up in such a manner that over 350 planes were built each month. To prevent an attack from the air, the manufacturing plants had been covered with greenery and farmland items. The Boeing-designed B-17 bomber was assembled also by Lockheed Aircraft Corp. and Douglas Aircraft Co., and the B-29 was assembled also by Bell Aircraft Co. and by Glenn L. Martin Company.
