Douglas DC7C



The Douglas DC7C, together with the Lockheed Constellation and Boeing Stratocruiser, was one of the mainstays of Transatlantic airlines during the fities and sixties. The arrival of turbojet powered aircraft, beginning with B.O.A.C.’s de Havilland Comet 4 then, later, the Boeing 707 and Douglas DC8 saw the beginning of the end of the piston-engined aircraft era.

This particular aircraft is to be seen at Phoenix Goodyear airport, Arizona, where, one day, it may be restored to its origianl glory and take to the air once again.
