Additional Details:
Today I inspected the world's fastest multi-motored passenger-mail-express plane, a sister ship of the one pictured on the reverse side. Forty of these new type, low-wing, all-metal Boeing monoplanes are in service on United Air Lines' Coast-to-Coast route. This airplane was selected as the only modern airplane to be exhibited in the "Dome" of the Travel and Transport Building, because it represents the latest features of airplane design and construction. Powered with two 550hp supercharged Wasp engines, they have a high speed of more than three miles a minute. They carry ten passengers, two pilots, and stewardess, their baggage and mail express can climb, fully loaded, 1320 feet per minute and to 10,000 feet in eleven minutes. They incorporate new features of comfort, speed, strength and power.
