The 737 is the world's most successful jet airliner with over 4,200 produced.

The 737 was originally planned as a short-range small capacity airliner smaller than the 707 and 727.  The 737-100 had a capacity of 100 and first flew in 1967.

The second generation 737 (series 300-500) were updated to include efficient high-bypass turbofan engines.  The first 737-300 first flew in 1984.

The next generation 737 (series 600-900) continued upgrading the original aircraft with more efficient engines, a new wing with greater chord span and area and larger tail surfaces.  The first next generation 737 first flew in 1996.
