Taken from a restored 1958 DC-7B passenger plane that was the 25th anniversary flagship aircraft for Eastern Airlines, this image looks south over the Miami, Florida, USA skyline at dawn framed by the prop engine.
Note: this is an actual photograph… several people have asked me where I got the picture of Miami… well, I got it from the passenger cabin of this DC7-B. My wife and I had the unique opportunity to fly twice in this incredible aircraft… round trip from Miami to Key West down the chain of islands that make up the Florida Keys, and another time round trip from Miami to Naples over the Florida Everglades. This image was captured as we departed Miami for Key West, having just taken off from Opa-Locka airport (OPF).
