Description

In the mid-1930s the Douglas DC-2 opened a new chapter in modern-era air transport. Providing its passengers with a fast and comfortable vehicle, it caused an enormous increase in traffic over the routes not only in the USA, but also in Europe, and enabled easy connections as far afield as south-east Asia and Australia. The licence rights were also obtained by the Japanese company Nakajima Hikoki Kobushiki Kaisha and these aeroplanes entered service with Dai Nippon Koku Kobushiki Kaisha airline.
