The Boeing 737 was developed as a shorter range, lower cost twin engined aircraft developed from the 707 and 727 using the same cockpit and fuselage structure. The 737 is the worlds best selling jet airline, with over 10,000 delivered to date. The family has been developed over half a century from the original 737-100 & 200 to the latest & 737 MAX family.
The original aircraft, a 737-100 made its first flight in April 1967 and entered service with Lufthansa in February 1968. A version lengthened by 1.53m the 737-200 entered service in April 1968. These versions of the 737 were powered by the Pratt & Whitney JT8D engines, in fact the firs versions off the production lines used the fuselage mounted nacelles and thrust reverser from the 727 - but these were found to lift the fuselage reducing wheel brake effectiveness, as well as not being very effective. A new reverser was introduced in 1968 which included a 1.22m tailpipe extension. The 737-100 & 200 are known as the 737 'Original' series.

The -100 is original and the smallest version of the family, being 29m (94ft) long and with a maximum of 124 passengers although typically carried 85 passengers.
The -100 was stretched to produce the -200 which was certified on 21st December 1967 and entered service with United on 28th April 1968. The -200 is 1.53m longer and can carry 136 passengers, although typically carrying 102 passengers.
The first revision of the original 737 was started in 1979 and is subsequently known as the Classic.
The major initial change is the introduction of the CFM56 engine and the fuselage was stretched by 2.87m to make the -300. The aircraft first flew on 24th February 1984.
Further models were the -400, stretched by a further 3.0m and the -500 stretched by 48cm from the 737-200.
The next revision of the 737 was the Next Generation, or NG. This aircraft introduced the glass cockpit and further system improvements as well as a increased wingspan of 4.9m.
The development of the initial model of the NG, started in November 1993. The model line up was the -600 replaced the -500, with the -700 replacing the -300, the -700 the -800 and the longest version being the -900.

Cockpit Revolution has been developing cockpit posters for the last 5 years and are drawn by a Flight Engineer using his expertise in aircraft engineering and training.
All the posters are based upon the manufacturers documentation, visits to the aircraft and simulators and photographs.
The posters are drawn to no specific configuration, phase of flight or switch position. If you require a specific configuration, phase of flight or switch position then please contact us.
