This is a restored EAL DC-7B with its original Eastern Airlines markings. The aircraft was first delivered to Eastern Airlines in 1958. This plane currently resides at Opalocka airport in Miami, Florida, and has been approved by the FAA to resume passenger service for “historical flights” by The Historical Flight Foundation. This plane is unique in that this aircraft represents the only U.S. based, four engine, passenger prop-liner in operation today.

20% of the proceeds of this image will go to help keep this beautiful plane flying. See it fly here:

I’m a Miami, Florida-based photographer. I and my camera try to get out as often as possible. These images are the result. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

If you like my images enough to buy them, please know that the income goes back into the art. Thanks for visiting!

    Wow well done! What a shame we can’t accept it into 2, 3, 4 Club. It has two too many wheels. We can only accept 2, 3 or 4 wheels. Sorry mate

  • LOL!!!! Thanks for the compliment. I’m afraid I was just counting the gear, not the wheels within them!

    Absolutely superb work. Doesn’t look overdone . . actually looks natural. I would love to be able to create such an image. First class.
