The Boeing 737 is a Jetliner Mail Medium aircraft, it came from the Boeing factory in 1967 in its first version, the 737-100 with a capacity of 100 seats (including the original version of -200).

From the 80s, the second generation of this device -300 version -400 & -500, the so-called "Classic" is equipped with modern and more economical reactors.

The 1990s saw a new generation Boeing 737 (Next Generation) appear with the posting of -600 versions, -700, -800 and about 1996 the latest version to date, 737-900.
