Boeing Business Jet arrives on Eve of Paris Air Show 2001

A Boeing-owned Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) arrives at Le Bourget Airport for the opening of this year's Paris Air Show, which runs from June 16 - 24. The winglet-equipped BBJ will be open to customers and members of the media for the first time at the show. Boeing Business Jets is a joint venture with General Electric launched in July 1996 to respond to market demand for a larger, more capable business airplane that can fly more than 6,000 nautical miles (11,110 kilometers). Since the program's inception, there have been 56 "green" (no paint or interior) BBJs delivered, and 32 are in service.
