The Boeing Model 1, also known as the B & W Seaplane, was a United States single-engine biplane seaplane aircraft. It was the first Boeing product and carried the initials of its designers, William Boeing and Lt. Conrad Westervelt USN. The first B & W was completed in June 1916, and was made of wood, with wire bracing, and was linen-covered. Two were completed, and sold to the New Zealand Flying School, this sale became Boeing's first international sale. In June 1919, the B&W set a New Zealand altitude record of 6,500 feet. The B & Ws were later used for express and airmail deliveries, making New Zealand's first official airmail flight in December 1919.
