Boeing 247D, serial no 1722, 1933.

Made:
1933 in United States, Washington and Seattle

Aircraft, Boeing 247D, serial no. 1722. Built July 1933. (Some of switches, dials etc. are radioactive and have been given separate part numbers).

Aircraft: Boeing 247D, serial no. 1722. Built July 1933. The Boeing 247D had most of the attributes associated with the modern airliner and was built at a time when Boeing was involved in both airline ownership and management. This aeroplane (serial number 1722) was purchased after the collapse of the 'Wings & Wheels Museum' in Florida in c 1980. It was flown across the old WW2 'Northern Ferry Route', and became the oldest aircraft to have flown the Atlantic when it landed in the UK on 3 August 1983.
