Step back in time with the oldest Boeing still flying

zAfter an 18,000 hour restoration, over a period of eight years, Addison Pemberton has finally finished a dream.

Along with 62 volunteers, he’s rebuilt the only flyable Boeing model 40 in existence. And it’s officially the oldest Boeing still flying, having been built in 1928.

Take a look at this EAA video offering a glimpse into 1920′s air travel. It’s hard to imagine that less than thirty years later, Boeing would fly the first 707 airliner.

Addison and his Boeing Model 40C will be touring the country this summer, if you get a chance, check it out.
