I don't know the answer, if it's not a standalone file.
This swf file seems to be dependant on other factors.
As a clumsy workaround, I would record the screen and insert the resulting movie, instead.
The basic BB Flashback Recorder is free, if you need a screen capture program.

Hi. It's a great animation but it looks like it belongs to Boeing.


Do you have the original SWF file from Boeing saved on your computer or are you trying to borrow it or copy/paste it from the site?


If you do have the file and having trouble getting it to play properly in PowerPoint, that is another issue. PowerPoint does not use Windows Media Player for video playback by default, it uses Media Control Interface (MCI), so it could just be a few settings or a work around to get it to play.


PowerPoint does support SWF. One thing to check is that you must add Macromedia Shockwave Flash ActiveX Control to a slide to play a flash file (.swf) during a slide show. 


Here is a little more information about it from Microsoft:
