Donald Douglas (1892-1981) was an aeronautical engineer/manufacturer. After graduating from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1912) and working for Glenn Martin as chief engineer, he formed his own company in 1920.

Building on the success of the twin engine D-3 (1936), Douglas Aircraft dominated domestic commercial air traffic until Boeing introduced the jetliner in 1958.

Douglas aircraft on exhibit at Yanks’ include the A-4 Skyhawk, AD Skyraider, C-47 Skytrain, KA-3 Skywarrior and SBD Dauntless.
