THE BOEING AIRCRAFT COR­PO­RA­TION MA­DE INCURSIONS IN­TO THE JETLINER AGE BACK IN 1958 WITH ITS FOUR-EN­GI­NE B-707. THAT WAS THE COM­PANY’S FIRST

STEP IN­TO THE DE­VE­LOP­MENT OF A RAN­GE OF AIRCRAFTS WITH DIFFERENT

CHARACTERISTICS. Boeing had its B-737 in the twin-jet ca­te­gory, which was des­cri­bed as the pla­ne with the shor­test ran­ge in the com­pany’s port­fo­lio. It was later fo­llo­wed by three-en­gi­ne B-727, long-ran­ge four-en­gi­ne B-747 «Jum­bo Jet» and a se­ries of midd­le and long-ran­ge twin-en­gi­ne aircrafts. The MAX fa­mily was born over the past years, in li­ne with the uns­top­pa­ble de­ve­lop­ment of new ver­sions with mo­re ef­fi­cient characteristics. The fa­mily’s first mem­bers we­re B-737-7MAX, B-737-8MAX, B-737-9MAX and B-737-10MAX. The no­men­cla­tu­re was gi­ven to ot­her mo­dels, but the MAX na­me was not used in B-7478I, B-787-8, B-787-9 and B-787-10. A si­mi­lar va­riant will be ap­plied to the new B-777, which has been

in­tro­du­ced as B-777x.
