The first production Boeing 737 made its maiden flight on April 9, 1967 with test pilots Brien Wygle and Lew Wallick at the controls. After departing Boeing Field, the plane flew for two and a half hours before landing at Paine Field in Everett, Wash. The prototype served as a test aircraft before becoming NASA's Transport Systems Research Vehicle in 1974. Now on loan from Langley Research Center, this “Baby Boeing” can be seen in The Museum of Flight’s Airpark.
