World’s Oldest Flying Boeing Airliner Takes Flight
Oldest Boeing Airliner in Flying Condition is Restored
The 1928 airplane is in Spokane , WA , and is the oldest flying Boeing in the World.
After 8 years of repair and rebuilding and 8,000 hours of toil the Boeing 40C rolled out last winter as a finished airplane. They had to wait a few weeks for the snow to melt to fly this baby. They received their Standard Airworthiness Certificate from the FAA and completed the engine pre-oil and fuel flow tests for the first of the taxi tests.
