The Martin 2-0-2 was an american twin-engined piston fixed-wing airliner. It was designed and built in 1947 but a fatal crash in August 1948 revealed a serious structural problem in the wings thus stopping its sales. Even a major redesign of the wing coudn't match the delays in production and the lack of cabin pressurization. Most of the order were cancelled and so only 47 aircraft were built.
This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Martin 2-0-2.
The Martin 2-0-2 and its Convair's competitor share the same shape and size. How to distinguish the Convair 240 and the Martin 2-0-2 ? The 240 has a pointed tail and a round nose, no dihedral to the horizontal stabilising surfaces. The Martin 2-0-2 has no pointed tail but the nose cone is longer, dihedral to both wings and horizontal stabilising surfaces. On the ground, passengers can board through a rear stairway under the tail which is not a feature of the Convair 240.
