April 30, 1946: First flight of the Grumman G-73 Mallard
The Boeing B-314 Pan Am Clipper was one of the most amazing aircraft ever made. It set the standards for long distance flight luxury that has yet to be surpassed. Up to 24 passengers could be moved across the ocean. The plane had bedrooms, dining rooms, kitchens, rec rooms and a separate section with beds for the crew. A skydome allowed the navigator to shoot the sky with a sextant to plot its position. The plane had stewards, cooks, a large crew that flew in shifts. Not one survives today.
