Delivered to United Air Lines in 1933 as NC13340, first as a Boeing 247, converted to 247D in July 1935. To the CAA (predecessor of the FAA) in 1942 as NC18. Sold in 1947, to N18 in 1949, and served with various companies. Reregistered as N18E in 1953. Acquired by the Wings and Wheels Museum at Orlando, FL in 1977. The museum closed in Dec 1981, and the Boeing was bought by the Science Museum in a Christie's auction. An epic delivery flight then took this rare aircraft through Reykjavik, Dublin and Cardiff on 29/30 Jul 1982. The final leg to Wroughton was flown on 3 Aug 1982

The Boeing 247 started a revolution in air transport, but it was overtaken by the DC-2, in the background, and only 75 examples were built. Now the DC-2 is in Boeing's patrimony and NC13711 is surrounded by Boeings in the Museum of Flight - from left to right, VC-137, 727, 747, 787, B-47 and B-29. Sorry for the shadow selfie.
