Narrow-body jet airliner Boeing 737-200, is one of the first mass aircraft of a large family of "Seven hundred thirty-seven" and belongs to the series "Original". Boeing 737-200, is an elongated version of the less popular airliner Boeing 737-100.

The development of the airliner by Boeing Commercial Airplanes began in February 1965. Work on the project to create a 85-and local airliner for lines of small and medium length, was a response to competition from the British aircraft BAC 1-11 and its entry into the US market. In the future, the project was changed, in particular, they decided to increase the passenger capacity to one hundred seats. In order to occupy a large part of the market and satisfy the demand of a wide range of customers, Boeing Commercial Airplanes began manufacturing the aircraft in two versions. This is the 100 local Boeing 737-100 and an extended version on the 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 of the Boeing 737-200 from subsequent aircraft of the family is the presence of elongated nacelle engines having a cigar-shaped appearance that run across the entire width of the wing and extend beyond its front and edge building. On later models, engine nacelles, suspended under the wing, are brought forward and do not protrude beyond the rear edge of the wing. Another difference between the “two hundred” series and the subsequent Boeing 737 aircraft is the smooth bending of the keel.

For the first time, the Boeing 737-200 took off the ground and made its first flight on August 8 of the year 1967. In December, the 1967 of the year after the end of the tests, the Boeing 737-200 simultaneously with the Boeing 737-100 aircraft was certified. The first customer for the Boeing 737-200 airliner was the airlineUnited Airlines».

In addition to the basic version have been released

The following options Boeing 737-200:

  • - Boeing 737-200С - cargo-passenger version of the aircraft, with take-off weight of 52,40 tons.

  • - Boeing 737-200QC - convertible version, designed for both passenger and air cargo

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

Over the entire production period, from 1967 to 1988, the order 1800 of Boeing 737-200 aircraft was released. The last regular passenger flight in the United States on a Boeing 737-200 aircraft was operated by Aloha Airlines 31 March 2008. To date, the airliner continues to operate, mainly in developing countries, as well as small, low cost airlines. But because of the high level of noise, the cost of maintenance, the amount of harmful emissions and high fuel consumption, the operation of the Boeing 737-200 is reduced, and newer and more modern machines take its place.
