Joe Sutter, father of Boeing's 747 jumbo jet, dies at 95

This guy changed the way people all over the world fly. For over 40 years too.

Joe Sutter, the Boeing Co. engineer who ushered in the modern era of long-range travel by spearheading the 747 jumbo jet in the 1960s, has died. He was 95.
“Joe lived an amazing life and was an inspiration – not just to those of us at Boeing, but to the entire aerospace industry,” Ray Conner, chief executive officer of Boeing’s commercial airplane division, told employees in a message announcing the death Tuesday. Airbus Group SE hailed him via Twitter as “a pioneer in the industry.”

The 747 was the capstone of a career spanning the twilight of piston-engine airliners to Boeing’s rivalry with Airbus four decades later. Starting with a swept-wing prototype in 1954 paving the way for the first U.S. jetliner, Sutter’s stamp was visible on aircraft through the 757 and 767 in the 1980s.

“He was a great engineer,” said Phil Condit, a former chief executive officer of Boeing who was once a member of Sutter’s 747 engineering group. “He dearly, dearly loved that airplane.”

Like the 747, Sutter was a throwback to a time when large, physical products defined U.S. innovation. With Boeing’s survival on the line, Sutter led a team that crafted the jet in less than two-and-a-half years even as he defied the design wishes of the first buyer: Juan Trippe, the Pan American World Airways founder who was then the most powerful person in aviation.

“The aircraft was iconic and so was he,” Richard Aboulafia, a Fairfax, Virginia-based aerospace analyst, said of Sutter. “It was a time of moonshots.”

Sutter retired in 1986 at age 65 as executive vice president in charge of Boeing’s commercial airplane engineering and product development. He served as a senior adviser emeritus for a quarter-century, regularly stopping by a Seattle-area office into his 90s.

Billions of people have flown in the 747; probably the safest jumbo jet. Can reach nearly the speed of sound and is still used as Air Force One. 8)

2. Jumbo Pie


Image

"Jumbo Pie"

She was a working girl
North of England way
Now she's hit the big time
In the USA
And if she could only hear me
This is what I'd say

Jumbo pie you are making me crazy
I'm in love but I'm lazy
So won't you please come home

Oh Jumbo pie my position is tragic
Come and show me the magic
Of your Hollywood song

You became a legend of the silver screen
And now the thought of meeting you
Makes me weak in the knee

Oh Jumbo pie you are driving me frantic
Sail across the Atlantic
To be where you belong

Jumbo pie come back to me, oh

Yeah
I like it like that, oh ah
I like this kind of hot kind of music
Hot kind of music
Play it to me, play it to me, Jumbo, the blues

Will the wind that blew her boat
Across the sea
Kindly send her sailing back to me

Jumbo pie you are making me crazy
I'm in love but I'm lazy
So won't you please come home
Come, come back to me, Jumbo pie

Oooooooooooh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Jumbo pie, Jumbo pie
