The Douglas World Cruiser was developed to meet a requirement from the U.S. Army Air Service for an aircraft suitable for an attempt at the first flight around the world. Five of these aircraft were ordered for the round-the-world flight, one for testing and training and four for the actual expedition. The four expedition aircraft, named Boston, Chicago, New Orleans, and Seattle, departed Seattle, Washington in April 1924 for the expedition around the world. Two of the four returned to their Seattle starting point in September 1924, 175 days after departing.
This handcrafted model is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.
