Boeing: 100 years of flying history

The US aerospace firm Boeing is celebrating its 100th year in business at the Farnborough Airshow. It grew from tiny beginnings - building seaplanes and then aircraft to deliver mail - into the biggest aircraft corporation in the world.

It has also been responsible for heavy bombers, the jumbo jet, and the main stage of the Saturn V rocket that took Neil Armstrong and other astronauts to the Moon.
