The Boeing 929-100 went into service in 1975. It was equipped with 2 Allison 501-KF jet engines. It was optimised for speed and had a typical cruise speed twice as fast as its competitors at the time. It was marketed as a short range people carrier with a maximum 1-class passenger capacity of 350 and a range of under 500km. Some variants had been produced for military use.

It had not been a hit because of its high fuel consumption at 1.75t/hr. Only 39 were ever built of which 24 were built by Boeing in Seattle alongside the 727/737/757. After the conclusion of production in Seattle the Boeing 929 was licensed to be built by Kawasaki Heav Industries in Japan.























































The Boeing 929 is a Jetfoil.

1.75 for 350 passanger for 500 km is quite effiecient. 3x more effiecient than 777

I remember taking the Boeing jetfoil from Dover to Oostend. As it didn't take cars, it was geared towards day trippers and rail travellers going to Europe, a market that ended with the opening of the Channel tunnel...


it's the bus to stansted (now renamed national express a4 to ruin my username)

I have ridden on it, as well, and remember watching them launch into Lake Washington from the Renton plant.

Boeing used to make buses and tramcars as well.

I'm not sure whether they still do, but there was one brought to the UK in the past few years from San Francisco to be tested on our street running tram tracks. Unfortunately it was unsuitable but the engineers considered it to be extremely well engineered.

I remember seeing a pic of some random Boeing product painted up in 90's house colors, looked pretty cool too, I just dont remember what it was. It may have been some jetfoil or something, dunno.

It makes a lot of sense to diversify into big capital projects as they have a wealth of in-house experts who can do electrical systems, aerodynamics (and relating it to fast water craft) and large mechanical structures.

Lawnmowers was a joke, but seemed to die along with Condit and his tenure.

I had a few trips on the jetfoil between Macau and Hong Kong recently. I saw "Boeing" written on the back and was wondering whether it was a joke!  Smile
