Lew Wallick was Boeing's chief test pilot during the introduction of the 7-Series jets, and retired as Director of Flight Test and Chief Test Pilot in 1986 after 35 years with the company. Along with flying the first 727, he was pilot or co-pilot on the first flights of the Boeing 737, 747SP, 757, 767 and more. His story is tied closely to a number of aircraft at The Museum of Flight. Planes in the Museum's collection that Lew Wallick flew include the 727 and 737 prototypes, the Canadair CL-13 Sabre (during its days as a chase plane for Boeing), the Boeing Model 100 biplane, and the Boeing B&W replica.

In a book titled "Growing Up Boeing: The Early Jet Age Through the Eyes of a Test Pilot's Daughter," author Rebecca Wallick, Lew's daughter, tells the story of Boeing's test pilots and flight test programs in the 1950s to 1980s. With stories from test pilots, including Brien Wygle, Dix Loesch, Harley Beard, Bill Allsopp and Jesse Wallick, this insider's view gives a firsthand account of what it took to test and certify early commercial jets.
