    Development of the DC-3 began in 1934 when American Airlines president C.R. Smith sought for a plane longer than the DC-2. The reason for this was, of course, better passenger capacity and accommodation which translates to larger profits. In response to this, Douglas Aircraft developed the first design of the DC-3 which was the Douglas Skysleeper Transport. Despite being the first unit of the series, the Skysleeper was relatively luxurious and can already accommodate 14 overnight passenger...

      After finalizing the design, the Grumman Albatross was introduced as a large amphibious flying boat.

        The Grumman HU-16 served the US Navy, the US Air Force, and the US Coast Guard as an amphibious flying boat. The aircraft�s deep hull and weight load capacity made it ideal for search and rescue (SAR) and combat and search missions.

It wasn�t until 1962 when the aircraft had its name standardized as the HU-16. The basic power source of the...

Once airborne, the nacelles rotate forward 90_ in as little as 12 seconds for horizontal flight, converting the V-22 to a more fuel efficient, higher speed turboprop aircraft. STOL rolling-takeoff and landing capability...
