Scene from the Golden Age of Flight in Color by 


From a passenger window of a 1958 Eastern Airlines DC-7B, past the massive turbo compound radial engines, sits a DC-3 and a DC-4 from the 1940’s. If you zoom in to the shot, you can see the date on the window glass of 6-Aug-61 (apparently replaced for maintenance).

This amazing scene was taken at Opalocka Airport in 2010, using a Canon 5D with a Tamron 28-300 VC lens. Three shots were taken, and they were tonemapped in Photomatix, then color processed in Aperture.

The Plane from which the picture was shot is owned by the Historical Flight Foundation. This aircraft is a flying museum, the last remaining one of it’s kind certified for passenger flight.

Please see my other images of this wonderful airplane:



There’s a B&W version of this image:

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!

  • Nice of you to say. I initially rejected it in favor of the B&W version, but had a change of heart. Glad everyone seems to approve!
