This is the flight deck of a DC-7B, looking at the throttle controls from the Captain’s perspective.

The plane is a 25th anniversary edition of an Eastern Airlines plane from 1958, parked at Opalocka airport in Miami, Florida. The plane is in operational condition, and is owned by the Historical Flight Foundation.

Please see my other images of this marvelous aircraft:

Three exposures using a Canon 5D, Tamron 28-300 VC lens, processed in Photomatix and Aperture.

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!

    my best, your host (francis).

  • Thank you so much for featuring this image! The history of this Eastern Airlines plane is so closely tied to South Florida, that I’m thrilled that you and the other Florida group have featured images of it.
