Plane Type: Boeing Model 247
The advent of the modern airliner began February 8, 1933, when
Boeing delivered the first Model 247 to United Airlines. This all metal
airliner, the first of its kind, could whisk its passengers in comfort at an
astounding rate of three miles per minute.
Seen here, this new Model
247, encounters a curious hiker as it drones its way through a pass in
front of the south face of majestic Mt. Rainier. A fully restored example
of this historic airliner resides at Seattle's Museum of Flight.
