The Boeing 737 is the world's
most popular medium range, narrow-body commercial passenger
jet aircraft. The 737-200 was an extended version of the
737-100, in order to accommodate the U.S. market. The 737 was
born out of Boeing's need to field a competitor in the
short-range, small capacity jetliner market which had been
opened up by the BAC-111 and the Douglas DC-9. Boeing was
badly behind however when the 737 program was initiated in
1964, as both of these rivals were already into their flight
certification programs. To speed up the development time,
Boeing reused as much technology from the existing 707 and 727
as possible, most notably the fuselage.
