  • Description
  • The Boeing Airplane Company got its first big military order when its "C" model seaplane was accepted as a trainer by the U.S. Navy during World War I. The company opened a new plant on the west side of the Duwamish River, south of Seattle, to handle all this new business. This photo, taken in August 1938, shows Plant 1 of the Boeing Airplane Company.
