One of two Monomails built as technology demonstrators for latge monoplane commercial aircraft. Initially Model 200, here modified to eight-seat 221A standard and test flown by United Airlines. The future site of Boeing's Renton factory lies beyond the Monomail's right wheel. From UAL 60 years ago.
