McDonnell Douglas DC-10

Held in affectionate regard by pilots and engineers, the DC-10 was “fun to fly, roomy, and quiet”. Yet this impressive pioneer of the three-engined, widebody airliner endured troubled beginnings. A series of accidents in the 1970s and 80s had unfortunately tarnished its reputation; however, only one of these accidents was due to a design deficiency, and this had been rectified in most DC -1 […]

Douglas DC-3

The most famous piston-engined airliner of all time, the DC-3 was tough, versatile, and economical – a masterpiece of functional design. It was an enlarged version of Douglas’s already successful DC-2, produced in response to a request from American Airlines president, C.R. Smith, for an aircraft to offer comfortable overnight travel. By increasing the length and girth of the DC-2’s fuselage, Douglas made room for […]

McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle

The American-built F-15 is regarded as the most formidable air-superiority fighter and interceptor in the world. Designed to replace the US Air Force’s (USAF’s) F-4 Phantom II, it excels in beyond-visual-range air-to-air missions and attack. Highly manoeuvrable and super-fast (up to Mach 2.5), it can deploy from the United States as far as Europe without refueling. The F-15 has advanced aerodynamics and uses […]

McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II

The most significant Western fighter of the 1960s, the F-4 Phantom equipped not only the US Navy and US Air Force (USAF) but also numerous foreign air arms, including Britain’s Royal Navy and Royal Air Force. It played a prominent part in the Vietnam War, proving equally effective whether operating from aircraft carriers or from land bases. A twin-engine two-seater, the F-4 Phantom was […]

Douglas C-54 Skymaster

While never the most glamorous of military aeroplanes, transport aircraft are often the most vital. The ever-reliable C-54 Skymaster ferried soldiers and supplies across oceans and continents throughout World War II and for many years after. The original C-54s were simply Douglas DC-4 airliners converted for military use. Developed as the successor to the DC-3, with much greater carrying capacity and range, the DC-4 […]

Boeing 247

First flown in February 1933, the Boeing 247 has sometimes been described as the first modern airliner. It was certainly a stride forward from the boxy Ford Trimotor then standard on American air routes. Evolved from the Boeing B-9 bomber, the 247 was powered by two Pratt & Whitney Wasp air-cooled radial engines. It was sleekly streamlined, with a smoothly shaped fuselage, a […]

Boeing Model 307 Stratoliner

The Boeing 307 Stratoliner was the world’s first airliner to have a pressurized passenger cabin. This meant that it couId fly in the cloudless blue of the stratosphere, high above the turbulent weather that had previously so often made flight a trying experience for passengers. The 307 was created as a spin-off of Boeing’s top military project, the development of which would become […]

The influence of war

From 1914 to 1918, World War I resulted in the transformation of aircraft from slow, frail vehicles into agile, capable fighting machines. The governments of the world began to see the military potential of air power, leading to tremendous progress, particularly in the fields of engine technology  and aerodynamics. Although Wright Aircraft had produced the first military airplanes in 1908, […]

De Havilland D.H.88 Comet Racer

The D.H.88 Comet was a long-range racing aircraft designed specifically to win the 1934 MacRobertson race for Britain.This was the longest air race ever staged, requiring aircraft to fly 111,300 miles from Mildenhall, England, to Melbourne, Australia. De Havilland built three Comets for the race; the first made its initial test flight only six weeks before the event. The aircraft […]

Planes for travel and fun

Commercial airliners underwent huge changes during the late 1960s and early 70s. The year 1969 saw the introduction of the world’s first wide-body jet, the Boeing 747, as well as the maiden flight of the supersonic Concorde. One proved much more influential than the other: Although few supersonic jets have been builtt wide-body carriers have become extremely popular. They include the Douglas […]
