We’re off May 15-21 on another adventure (the previous one we talked about being our Alaskan polar bear photo safari). This time we’re scheduled on a trip that includes 12 hours of flying in a Douglas DC-7B
This airplane was originally Eastern Air Lines and it was discovered, with the original EAL interior, and restored. Here is a story about this restoration.
Our trip originates in Miami. After some lower-level flying, it will proceed to San Juan; then on to St. Martins (the airport where the planes practically land on the beach). After two days at St. Martin, the trip reverses and goes back to Miami, with a final stop (via bus) at the Opa Locka airport where there are scores of old piston liners.
We’ll be off-line and out of touch, but will provide a trip report upon return.
