Who knew that Boeing made the first Air Force One?

For 100 years, the world’s largest aerospace company has been selling airplanes, rockets, and space capsules to some of the biggest companies all over the world, the U.S. military, and even NASA. Boeing (BA) has had some major accomplishments in its time. From the Enola Gay and the first Air Force One to the most well known passenger jet, the 747. The company started off this year poorly with its stock price dropping 20% and announcing layoffs to cut costs. Last month, the aviation giant signed a tentative agreement with Iran Air for the Islamic Republic company to buy 100 planes reportedly valued at $25 billion. Time Inc. brands such as Time, Fortune, and Life have been there covering Boeing since 1924. Take a look at some of these amazing photos we dug out of our archives.
