I don't know whether the description "art deco" can be applied sensibly to aircraft design, but if it can, the "Dragon Rapide" must surely be the supreme example.

The DH.89 "Dragon Rapide" was a British short-haul passenger airliner designed by the de Havilland company in late 1933, that became one of the most successful British-built commercial passenger aircraft of the 1930s. During World War II 500 Rapides were built for military service, bringing total production to 731. Many entered commercial service after the war, and 81 were still flying on the British register in 1958.
