Additional Information:

The Boeing Model 247 is an early American airliner and one of the first aircraft to incorporate technological advances such as all-metal (anodized aluminum) construction, a fully cantilevered wing, and retractable landing gear. Other advanced features included control surface trim tabs, an autopilot and de-icing boots for the wings and stabilizer. The 247 first flew on February 8, 1933, and entered service later that year.

This Boeing 247, number N-18E, was flown by Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) across New Mexico in 1947 to evaluate radio and aerial navigation facilities that delineated the airways systems across New Mexico. The aircraft was based at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
