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% faster than the competition. The 247 embodied the latest technical innovations and established new norms for passenger comfort and safety. This is the story of its origins, production, service, impact and modification with Boeing’s 247-D. A collectable historical record of Boeing 247 in an attractive dust jacket.
