states Feb 28, 2022

While German immigrant Wilhelm Boeing made his fortune in natural resources like timber and iron ore, his son, William, is best known for–you guessed it–taking the fledgling field of aviation to new heights. In this episode, Sharon’s sister Caroyln joins her to hear a bit about the history of flight and the Boeing family. Learn about what prompted William to build his first seaplane, how both World Wars impacted the growth of the Boeing Airplane Company, and why Boeing eventually retired from the biz. Additionally, Sharon shares a small history of flight attendants and their original job descriptions and duties might surprise you!
