Description
A Boeing 80A at United Airport (Bob Hope Airport) in Burbank. The 80A had passenger capacity for 18 and made her maiden flight on September 12, 1929. Her predecessor, the Model 40A plane, also included three engines and an enclosed flight deck for 2 pilots, but could only hold 12 passengers. Ten Model 80As flew for the Boeing airlines and introduced aviation's first female flight attendants, after registered nurse Ellen Church convinced managers at Boeing that female registered nurses would be a useful addition for an aircraft's crew. Photo dated: February 6, 1931.
