The main reason for which was developed by the multi-purpose aircraft, was the need for the United States civil aviation modern and spacious aircraft suitable both for passengers and for freight transport. Despite the fact that the production cycle of manufacture of planes of this model was brief, just one year the American aircraft manufacturers could release 47 aircraft operated up to 70-ies of the last century.

However, due to technical errors committed early in the design of aircraft, aircraft of this model suffered a plane crash with dozens of victims. So, just for e-50 11, there was a crash, which killed more than 150 chelvoeka, which was one of the reasons for reducing risk of this model. How do I find experts, the main reason for the frequent air crashes was the problem with the wings, which are set at high altitude just broke up, leading to tragic consequences.
