I saw this the other day and thought it was pretty funny. Boeing hired Inventory Locator Service to produce an infographic of the Evolution of
Boeing, starting with the Wright Brothers as the obvious first step, and going through the expected entry of the 777X family. Only apparently someone
didn't do their homework very well.
If you look at the infographic, in 1967, they mark the first flight of the 737-100, by using the image of a 737NG, which didn't fly until 1997.
In 1969, they mark the first flight of the 747-100, by using the image of a 747-8.
In 1997, to denote the merger of McDonnel Douglas and Boeing, they use a 787.
In 2009, for the first flight of the 787, they use a 777.
And then, to top it all off, at the bottom of the graphic, is a huge image of an A321 sitting parked.
