Obituaries 
 
Malcolm Stamper, former president of the Boeing company, who has died aged 80, spearheaded the development of the
747 jumbo jet, and led an unsuccessful bid to surpass Concorde with a bigger, faster supersonic transport plane (SST).

In 1967 he flew air correspondents - myself among them - to Seattle for the unveiling of a mock-up of Concorde's proposed rival.
The American SST was to fly at 1,800 mph - 600 mph faster than the Anglo-French jet, and, with 200 passengers, possessing twice its capacity. The Boeing would have a double "droop-snoot nose" and wings that would be swept back for supersonic flight.

By 1970, Stamper had won 122 provisional orders from 26 airlines for his SST, compared with 72 such orders from 16 airlines
for Concorde. Stamper and his team planned to get the SST into service in 1974, several years later than Concorde's target,
promising that it would provide 250,000 jobs for American aviation workers. He had 1,500 designers and technicians working on it
when Congress cancelled government funding, citing environment reasons as well as anxiety about costs. By then the project had
cost the US £1bn - about the same amount that

France and Britain had spent on producing two Concorde prototypes.
Far from being relieved at the SST's cancellation, the Anglo-French planemakers feared that their governments would follow
suit. But although Concorde was saved, the orders for both faded away, and only 20 Concordes were built. Many years later,
I photographed the remains of the £3m US mockup abandoned amid the weeds of a breakers' yard just outside the
Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The insignia of the 26 airlines who had promised to buy it were still visible on the fuselage.

Stamper was born in Detroit, the son of Ford motor factory painter. After serving as a naval officer from 1942 to 1946,
he took an electrical engineering degree at Georgia, studied law and then worked at General Motors for 14 years. He joined
Boeing in 1962 as head of the aerospace electronics division, and within three years was general manager of the turbine division.

By 1967, he was also in charge of production of the 400-passenger-capacity 747, which has dominated civil aviation ever since.
While the aircraft was being designed, a forest near Seattle was cleared for the factory where 1,400 of them were to be built.
Stamper's wife recalled that, back home after a long day, he would suggest driving her to Everett to check on progress.
Part of the job consisted of persuading world airports that runways had to be strengthened and terminals enlarged to
accommodate the era of mass travel which the 747 generated. He was president of the company and a member of the
board of directors from 1972 until 1985, when he became vice chairman, and retired in 1990.

Stamper also skied, ran marathons, painted and grew orchids. In retirement he founded a publishing company. He was the
publisher, his wife the editor and a daughter president, and they published 40 children's books. In 1991 he formed
Operation Outreach US, a not-for-profit organisation aimed at eliminating illiteracy, which provided books for schoolchildren.

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, four sons and two daughters.
