The Sky Sovereign Is Entroned

This site is dedicated to the Douglas DC-4E, the Sky Sovereign. A one of a kind aircraft, representing the highest that technology had to offer in it's day. Only one was built. Only one ever flew. We shall never see its like again This is the story of that airplane; the Sky Sovereign is enthroned..................

Warren J. Lund from San Jose, California, kindly sent me some pics of his model - the scratch built 1/72 Douglas DC-4E. It looks real!
