Versions of the Boeing 737 have been flying since 1967, and this popular single aisle airliner is still going strong today. It is the most produced commercial jetliner.
Newer Boeing 737 aircraft incorporate winglets for improved economy, an enhanced accuracy global positioning system, a Head Up Display similar to military aircraft, and a Vertical Situation Display that automatically gives pilots situational awareness of the terrain in their flight path shown in a graphic display. The addition of the Head Up Display lessens aircraft down time due to reduced visibility conditions, allowing the pilot to continually scan out of the windshield rather than having to glance down to monitor instruments.
The latest "Next Generation" aircraft have longer wings and cleaner running, quieter, better fuel efficiency engines.
A total of over 9,400 Boeing 737 aircraft have been produced to date.
