|The airliner that has everything
HERE'S a 3-minute tour of the world's first true super-transport — the great new Boeing Stratocruiser. It has all the features shown above and more that can't be photographed.
Comfort, for instance — the comfort of breathing clear, pure air, at exactly the right temperature; cabin altitude control so efficient that even at 25,000 feet you feel no change in pressure; smooth, quiet flight; and 340-mile-an-hour speed that saves you hours even in this air age.
But most important of all is the security you feel-your knowledge of the staunch dependability inherent in the Stratocruiser — Boeing-designed and Boeing-built.
