This is the concise illustrated history of the latter series of piston-powered airliners from the greatest civil aircraft manufacturer from the '30s to the '50s. Douglas established their reputation with the sheer technical excellence of the twin-engined DC-2 and DC-3 machines. In the mid 1930s, the company was looking to progress to four-engined aircraft and the development of the DC-4 led it to a golden age for Douglas transporters. The DC-4 did noble war service as a long-range military transport; the DC-54 became the mainstay of the Berlin airlift; the DC-6 became a mainstay of post-war civil carriers; the DC-7C flew a non-stop service for Pan Am from New York to London (and back, for the first time) in 1956. This was a golden age for commercial aviation - jetliners may be quiet and stunningly fast, but they never had the same aura as the Douglas DCs.
