Delivered more than 50 years ago to Eastern Airlines, this is a very unique opportunity to join this Historical Flight Foundation restored Douglas DC-7 on its first international flight from Miami to St. Maarten.
Eastern Air Lines started operating the DC-7 in 1953. The aircraft featured in this program was delivered to Eastern on January 23rd, 1958. Eastern operated 49 DC-7Bs and they were retired in October of 1966. Eastern Air Lines ended operations in early 1991. N836D was rescued from almost certain scrapping in 2004 and went through a 6 year restoration project that led to its return to the air on July 4th, 2010 at Opa Locka Airport. In May 2011 the aircraft operated its 1st International flight and thanks to a great cooperation between the Historical Flight Foundation, Ian Allan Tours, Florida Air Transport and Just Planes, you can now enjoy and be part of that historic flight!
Run time is about 170 minutes. Format is NTSC DVD.
