William Edward Boeing

Boeing – that’s the dynamic world of aviation, enormous aircrafts, global air traffic, as well as success and economic power. Yet hardly anyone realises that the mighty “global player” was once a family-owned business, and only very few people know that the family originally came from Germany. The film “William Edward Boeing – Ace of Aircraft” visits original sites where you can still feel the Boeing story to this very day. It delves into archives and finds surprising new information about the family history, and includes interviews with the son of the company founder William Boeing.

William Edward Boeing

Ace of Aircraft

The name Boeing is THE symbol for the dynamic world of aviation, enormous aircrafts, global air traffic, as well as success and economic power. Yet hardly anyone realises that the mighty “global player” was once a family-owned business, and only very few people know that the family originally came from Germany. The film “William Edward Boeing – Ace of Aircraft” visits original sites where you can still feel the Boeing story to this very day. It delves into archives and finds surprising new information about the family history, and includes interviews with the son of the company founder William Boeing.

Detailed re-enactments visualizing key points in William Boeing’s life in the late 19th and early 20th century, filmed in the USA with a German-American team, bring an era back to life. The result is an exciting family portrait, a gripping story of an immigrant family, and an astounding documentary about an entrepreneur – the history of the Boeings and Böing, whose family ties span the Atlantic.
