Our United B 247 Model Airplane is a replica scale model of the original Boeing United Airlines 247D passenger aircraft. The United 247 aircraft had the advantage of crossing the country 8 hours faster than other airplanes. The disadvantage was that it could only fly 10 passengers at a time. Introduced in 1933 it was retired before WW II and 75 Boeing 247s were built.
This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.
