Boeing’s first of several jets it’s selling to Iraq has touched down in Baghdad. The arrival of the 777-200LR plane in the Iraqi capital on Saturday is the latest sign that Iraq is working to recover and rebuild after decades of war and sanctions.

Boeing says Iraq has ordered another 30 of the smaller 737-800 model and 10 of its new 787. The first of the 737s will be delivered in the middle of next year.

Iraqi Transportation Ministry spokesman Karim al-Nouri says the plane’s arrival is an important step toward building a large and reliable fleet for the government-owned Iraqi Airways.

Iraqi Airways’ efforts to turn itself around have been hobbled by its ageing fleet and a long-running dispute with Kuwait.

Showcase Models’s vast selections of display model airplanes, desk model airplanes, and wooden plane models fascinate anyone who gazes at it for its remarkable and exceptional quality.
