The Last Flying Stratoliner Goes to the Smithsonian
While the Douglas DC-3 is the most popular and beloved of the 1930's airliners, the plane that would have dominated transportation in the 40's was the Boeing Stratoliner. Pressurized, and thus able to fly over most weather, the Stratoliner was introduced in 1940. Only 10 were built as producing bombers had a higher priority for Boeing and the country.
Of course, as any true Parrothead knows, there's another Stratoliner out there.
