The narrow-body Boeing 737-200 jet airliner is one of the first mass-produced aircraft of the large Seven hundred and thirty-seventh family and belongs to the Original series. The Boeing 737-200 is an extended version of the less popular Boeing 737-100 airliner.

Development of the airliner by Boeing Commercial Airplanes began in February 1965. Work on a project to create an 85-seater airliner for short and medium-haul lines was a response to competition from the British BAC 1-11 aircraft and its entry into the American market. In the future, the project was changed, in particular, they decided to increase the passenger capacity to one hundred seats. Boeing Commercial Airplanes began production of the aircraft in two versions in order to occupy a large part of the market and satisfy the demand of a wide range of customers. This is a 100-seat Boeing 737-100 and an extended version with 115 seats - Boeing 737-200.

On the "two hundred" were set turbojets Pratt Whitney JT8D-7 65,8 each thrust of kN.

The main visual difference between the Boeing 737-200 and subsequent aircraft of the family is the presence of elongated engine nacelles, which have a cigar-like appearance, which extend across the entire wing width and protrude beyond its leading and building edges. On later models, the engine nacelles, suspended under the wing, are carried forward and do not protrude beyond the trailing edge of the wing. Another difference between the "737" series from the subsequent Boeing XNUMX aircraft is the smooth bending of the keel.

The Boeing 737-200 first took off from the ground and made its maiden flight on August 8, 1967. In December 1967, after the completion of tests, the Boeing 737-200 was certified along with the Boeing 737-100. The first customer for the Boeing 737-200 was the airline “United Airlines».

In 1971, an improved version of the aircraft was released, which received the designation Boeing 737-200 Advanced. On this version, the aerodynamics were improved, the thrust reverse efficiency was increased, and the flap design was also modified. This version became the basic modification for the further development of the Boeing 737 family.

For the entire production period, from 1967 to 1988, about 1800 Boeing 737-200 aircraft were produced. The last scheduled passenger flight in the United States on a Boeing 737-200 was operated by Aloha Airlines on March 31, 2008. Today, the airliner continues to operate, mainly in emerging odd, as well as small, low-cost airlines. But due to the high noise level, maintenance costs, the amount of harmful emissions and high fuel consumption, the operation of the Boeing 737-200 is declining, and newer and more modern aircraft take its place.
