What was the Boeing logo before McDonnell Douglas?

Sat Sep 22, 2018 1:48 am

So pretty much everyone knows the current Boeing logo is actually what used to be the McDonnell Douglas logo before it merged with Boeing. But what was the original Boeing logo? I can't seem to find that anywhere!

I think it was quite literally the present Boeing titles that accompany the MD logo.

See https://www.famouslogos.net/boeing-logo/. It's the old Boeing wordmark combined with a streamlining of the old MD logo (minus the words).

It was simply the Boeing wordmark in Boeing Stratotype from 1947 until the McDD merger. Basically the Boeing logo of today without the accompanying icon that was similar to the McDD icon.

The Boeing logo is a variation of the McDonnell Douglas logo, not an exact copy.

Funny nobody complains the combined logo isn’t jumbled or like two identities in one like United.
