The Boeing 377 Stratocruiser was airliner version of the 367 Boeing Stratofreighter, which in turn was the transport version of B-29 Superfortress. It first flew on July 8, 1947.

It was generally considered the greatest airliner in the air before the coming of the 707 and was the flagship of the Pan Am fleet. Its spiral staircase inspired the one on the 747.
