Hailed as the first modern airliner, the Boeing 247 of 1933 marked the emergence
of fast, comfortable air travel. This sleek, all-metal monoplane carried 10
passengers at 160 mi/h (260 km/h).

Yep, a beautiful plane that began a new era but was soon eclipsed by the
Douglas DC-2 and DC-3. Many DC-3's remain in service to this day. I'd love to
see some of these birds flying around as often as I do the Douglas.
