The world's oldest flyable Boeing airliner will make its last flight on April 26. The classic twin-engine Boeing 247D from the 1930s--one of a mere four remaining in the world, and the only one flyable--has been in the Museum's collection since 1966. Based at the Museum's Restoration Center on Paine Field in Everett, Wash., it was featured at airshows and other events around the country from 1994 until 2004. At noon on Tuesday the 26th, the 83- year-old airliner will fly to the Museum's Boeing Field campus and be retired for permanent display.
Dreamliner Chief Test Pilot at the Helm The crew for this special flight will be two Boeing test pilots with experience at the controls of the 247, Mike Carriker and Chad Lundy. Carriker was the chief test pilot for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, so on this trip, the world's oldest Boeing airliner will be flown by the chief pilot of Boeing's newest airliner.
