Product Description Product Description Avid collectors of handcrafted replica should not miss this desktop scale model. With the expert craftsmanship of this desktop replica, you’ll surely be proud to bring it home and display on your desk. From the Manufacturer The DC-3 Eastern Douglas was engineered by a team led by Chief Engineer Arthur E. Raymond, and first flew on December 17, 1935 (the 32nd anniversary of the Wright Brothers flight at Kitty Hawk). The aircraft was the result of a marathon phone call from American Airlines CEO Cyrus Smith to Donald Douglas requesting the design of an improved successor to the DC-2. The amenities of the DC-3 Eastern Douglas (including sleeping berths on early “DST” — Douglas Sleeper Transport — models and an in-flight kitchen) popularized air travel in the United States. With only three refueling stops, eastbound transcontinental flights across America taking approximately 15 hours became possible. Westbound trips took 17 hours 30 minutes due to typical prevailing headwinds – still a significant improvement over the competing Boeing 247. Before the arrival of the DC-3, such a trip would entail short hops in commuter aircraft, during the day, coupled with train travel overnight.
