Boeing was founded in 1916 in Seattle, Washington by William E. Boeing. As an aerospace and defense manufacturer, Boeing has expanded over the years to become one of the largest manufacturers of aircrafts in the world by revenue. Boeing is broken down into different units, including Boeing Defense, Space & Security and Boeing Commercial Airplanes to name just two. Many of the early planes made by Boeing were seaplanes, but airplanes quickly became the company?s primary focus. During World War I, the US Navy ordered fifty Model C planes, paving the way for Boeing to become a top defense supplier.
