Founded in 1944 by two former Douglas employees (Ted Smith being one), Aero Engineering Company and introduced the first AC 520 in 1948. In 1950 they changed their name to Aero Design & Engineering Company introducing the AC680 in 1954. Through all those years the Aero Commander was last produced in 1980. Today, Commander Aircraft is known for the Commander 115 series. Did you know the AC680 was the smallest air Force One (1956-1960).

Although the 747-200 was developed after the 747-100, it was built during roughly the same time frame. The first -200 went into commercial service in 1971, and Boeing delivered a total of 393, the last in 1991. Although its external appearance is nearly identical to the 747-100, it was designed to carry more payload. In addition to being offered as a passenger airplane, the -200 was the first 747 to be configured as a freighter, a combination passenger-freighter and a convertible.

With the lowest operating cost per ton-mile in the industry, the new-technology Boeing 747-400 Freighter is the all-cargo transport member of the 747-400 family. It can carry twice as much cargo, twice as far, as the competitor's leading freighter. Along with earlier versions, 747 Freighters - about 225 in all - carry half of all the world's freighter air cargo.

America entered the age of the jet transport on July 15, 1954, when the Boeing 707 prototype, the model 367-80, made its maiden flight from Renton Field, south of Seattle. Forerunner of the more than 14,000 Boeing jetliners built since, the prototype, nicknamed the "Dash 80," served 18 years as a flying test laboratory before it was turned over to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in May 1972. The refurbished Dash 80 made a special fly-over of the five Boeing facilities in the Puget Sound area on July 15, 1991.

At the 50's De Havilland Comet was a real revolution at the field of commercial airplanes as it was the first civil aircraft with jet engines. That aircraft was very good but after some time problems came up, problems that hurt its reliability. The passengers were able to pay something more to travel with speed and luxury. So, Howard Hughes, an eccentric shareholder of TWA, gave the idea to Convair to create a new jet plane that could carry passengers at high speeds and with comfort. Hughes also promised that TWA would buy a large number of these aircraft.

The de Havilland Canada DHC-7 was the first STOL Airplane certified according to FAR25 criteria for transport. With design commencing on July 12, 1971 the first airframe commenced assembly in Hanger #1 at Downsview in September 1972. The first aircraft was delivered to Rocky Mountain Airways in February 1978. Following this delivery, another 99 were delivered but due to the recession of the early 80's following the sale to Boeing production was terminated.

"The Douglas DC-3 revolutionized air transportation and airline service during the 1930s and 1940s. It was a luxury airliner that boasted cabin heat and running water in its on-board lavatory.
With the right balance of efficiency, range, speed, and payload, the DC-3 was the first aircraft to earn a profit for its owners just by carrying passengers. The hero of early airlines, a handful of DC-3s are still at work today."
   
DOUGLAS DC-7C - Tom Gibson model FS2004 FS2002

The DC-7C was a complete redesign abandoning the wing of the DC-4 allowing a further substantial increase in fuel and oil capacity.
Updated engines gave slightly more power for take off and climb, but since the DC-7C was lbs heavier than the DC-7B performance was significantly reduced.

The DC-8 is one of the earliest jet-powered commercial passenger aircraft. A capacity for improved power, payload and range capabilities was inherent in the DC-8 design. Four basic models were produced: the Series 10 through 50, in passenger, freighter and convertible freighter versions; and the Super 60, with freighter models of each. The last of 556 aircraft was delivered on May 13, 1972, marking the end of 15 years of production, at which time there were 48 operators in 28 nations.

The Fairchild Metroliner III comes somewhere between a private jet and a regional airliner. It is often used as a charter or as a company plane. It can relatively easily be converted from a twelve-seater VIP-configuration into a small airliner, or cargo. And for the latter reason, it has a relatively large luggage door for this type of plane. This also makes it highly suitable to quickly transport technical service teams and their equipment to problem situations.

The Maule M-7-260, equipped with 260 hp Lycoming IO-540-V4A5 engine, is the most powerful model in the Maule fleet. It can easily be outfitted for work and for luxurious cross-country cruising. With its fast cruise speed and slow stall speed, the M-7-260 is a very comfortable and safe travel airplane. The 260hp engine also nicely enhances performance of amphibious float equipped M-7ís.

A new category of airplane was added to the world's air transportation system when the DC-10 entered scheduled airline service. It has been demonstrating its value to airlines and air travelers since then, winning world recognition for its reliability, comfort and efficiency in more than 25 million hours of revenue flight. In addition to the luxury and spaciousness inherent in its wide cabin, the three-engine DC-10 incorporated improvements in propulsion, aerodynamics, structure, avionics, flight control systems and environmental compatibility that advanced industry standards.

This first derivative of the 757 was announced by Boeing Dec. 30, 1985, when United Parcel Service ordered 20. Deliveries of these dedicated cargo airplanes began in Sept. 1987. The basic maximum takeoff weight of the 757F is 250,000 pounds (113,400 kilograms), with an option for 255,000 pounds (115,600 kilograms).  Maximum revenue payload capability of 87,700 pounds (39,780 kilograms) including container weight. When carrying the maximum load, the 757F has a range of about 2,900 nautical miles (5,371 kilometers).
