In 1935 Boeing designed their four-engined Model 307 airliner based on its B-17 heavy bomber. The revolutionary design combined the wings, tail, rudder, landing gear, and engines from their production B-17C but with a circular cross-section fuselage that could be pressurized. Deliveries to Pan Am started in March 1940 and were used in their Miami to Latin America routes. Ten 307s were built, three being delivered to Pan-Am as the Clipper Flying Cloud, Clipper Comet, and Clipper Rainbow and five to TWA as Comanche, Cherokee, Zuni, Navajo, and Apache with one aircraft going to Howard Hughes.
