Roden Aircraft 1/144 DC9 Trans World Airlines Airliner Kit
After WWII there was a big push for the emergence of heavy four-motor transport planes, and it might have seemed that the fate of the DC-3 was decided, however this opinion was quite wrong. It conceded its role on long distance flights to the bigger DC-4 and DC-6, both in the USA and on transatlantic flights, however within the country, over short and medium distances, a replacement was not available for several years. Most machines are resold again, in the variety of places around the world where they survive, although they are less and less frequently found nowadays. So the plane created for the comfort of the elite became among the most popular of all the airliners which have ever risen into the air in the entire history of air transportation.
