BBJ Birthday

Boeing Business Jets is celebrating its 20th birthday. What started in 1996 as an idea to formally sell 737s as business jets has now become so much more. BBJ has sold 239 airplanes of every commercial model Boeing offers to businesses, governments, charter companies and private individuals. Happy 20th!
