These 3-mile-a-minute multi-motored Boeings of United Airlines, Inc, travel as far in six minutes as the ox teams of pioneer times did in a day. What was once a heart-breaking journey of months is now but a few hours of comfortable travel aloft. In Flight with United Air Lines. The Boeing monoplanes of United Air Lines have ushered in a new era in travel. With two 550 h.p. super-charged Wasp engines, they have a high speed of more than three miles a minute. They carry 10 passengers, 2 pilots, stewardess and cargo and can climb, fully loaded, 1320 feet per minute and to 10,000 feet in ten minutes. They can sustain flight on only one engine.
