Boeing 307 "Flying Cloud"

Boeing 307

Pima Air Museum, Tuscon Arizona (1990)

Less than a dozen Stratoliners were built, and this is the sole remaining example. This Stratoliner was taken to Seattle where it was restored to flight condition and returned to it's orginal Pan Am Flying Cloud colors. It was a major success at airshows in 2001, but was unfortunately ditched in Puget Sound on it's first flight of 2002. An effort is underway to restore it a second time to flightworthy condition. The aircraft is part of the National Air & Space Museum's collection and will eventually be displayed at the new museum to open in 2003.
