Almost exactly a year ago, Boeing gave the world a glimpse of its Crew Space Transportation vehicle, the CST-100. It was unclear whether or not the company was looking to augment NASA's efforts with a new craft, or pursue designs of its own. Now we know: Boeing is kick-starting its own commercial spaceflight program.
A pulsejet sure sounds like it belongs on a spaceship or something, but it's actually one of the most primitive (or at least simplest) types of jet engines there is. The Nazis used pulsejets on their first generation of cruise missile, the V-1, and now Boeing is toying with the idea of getting them to power a VTOL aircraft.
On June 7, 1995 the Boeing 777 took its first commercial flight. Since that first trip from London to Washington, D.C., the 777 has flown almost five million flights — and more than 18 million flight hours....
This patent from Boeing reveals some of the new ways that passenger airliners could be made quieter, more efficient, and much much cooler looking.
It's the dawn of a new age of aerial combat as Boeing prepares to flight test its Phantom Ray robot fighter jet for the first time. Meet your new best friend, nuggets.
Not too long ago Boeing unveiled its plans to develop a commercial space capsule. Turns out the company has a grander scheme in mind: to enter the space tourism business itself. The company will follow a Russian model of taking tourists up alongside astronauts.
What kind of planes will we ride in 30 years from now? While Airbus not too long ago offered a wild vision full of holographic projections and morphing seats, Boeing is keeping it real after an 18-month-long study on the future of air travel.
Boeing has announced its plans to produce a low-cost, high-occupancy passenger capsule called the Crew Space Transportation-100 (or CST-100) vehicle. It'll ride at the nose of rockets just like the capsule that came before it, and it could be ready by 2014.
This is Boeing's "Phantom Eye," a hydrogen-powered, unmanned spy plane that flies 65,000 feet above the ground and can fly for four days straight. Boeing hails it as the "first of its kind" — its looks alone set it apart for that honor.
Meet Phantom Ray, the sneakiest remote-controlled stealth aircraft yet. This 36-foot-long unmanned airborne system (UAS) is about the size of a fighter jet. To elude detection, Boeing hid its engine deep within its fuselage, making it harder to spot with...
