The Douglas World Cruiser (DWC) was developed to meet a requirement from the U.S. Army Air Service for a aircraft suitable for an attempt at the first flight around the world. The Douglas Aircraft Company responded with a modification of their DT torpedo bomber. The DWC differed from the DT in having a greater fuel capacity for greater range. The cockpits for the pilot and crewman were also located more closely together. Like the DT, the DWC could be fitted with either floats or a conventional landing gear. Five of these aircraft were ordered for the round-the-world flight, one for testing and training and four for the actual expedition. The four expedition aircraft, named Boston, Chicago, New Orleans, and Seattle, departed Seattle, Washington on April 4, 1924 for the expedition around the world. The "Seattle" crashed into a mountain in Alaska on April 30. The "Boston" was forced down while crossing the Atlantic and damaged beyond repair. The remaining two aircraft continued across the Atlantic back to the United States, where they were joined by the test aircraft, now christened "Boston II". The aircraft returned to their Seattle starting point on September 28 1924, 175 days after departing.
