DC-4 (Douglas 1946)

The DC-4 carried 44 passengers at more than 200 mph. Its straightforward, four-engine design was laid down in 1938. Roughly three times the size of the DC-3, the DC-4 was commandeered by the U.S. Army Air Forces in 1942, delaying its use in commercial service until 1946. More than 300 eventually were used by the airlines.
