Ooops, yes, you're right, I meant 247, not 297.  And the "tradition"
didn't date back to the founding of the company, just to about the mid-
30's.
Maybe the designations B-17, B-47, and KC-97 were coincidences, maybe not.
  I doubt the VC-137 designation for the first jet Air Force One was a
coincidence, for instance.

But it's fun to talk about, anyway.
