In 1933, the Boeing Aircraft Company set a new standard for air transportation by introducing the Boeing 247 a graceful, all-metal, twin-engined aircraft that was 50 percent faster than the competition. Van der Linden traces the development of the 247 and the odyssey from its brief period of dominance through years of reliable service for regional carriers, for the Allied air forces, for airlines in the Andes and the Amazon basin, for bush pilots in Alaska, and for crop dusters. Includes photographs, detailed drawings, specifications, a service chronology for each plane, and the original instructions for pilots. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
