The NAVY knows...
Boeing is proud of its navy service record! Boeing-equipped squadrons hold the vertical bombing and gunnery championship, the 1930 Schiff Memorial Trophy for flying without mishap, and other tributes to men and aircraft. Careful buyers recognize, in Boeing commercial models, the stimulus of the Navy's exacting requirements. These are a constant spur to Boeing engineers, whose fighters in Navy Service today outnumber those of all other builders. Boeing Airplane Company, Seattle. Subsidiary of United Aircraft and Transport Corporation.
