OK, how about this one? Sorry about the size.
Carvair is correct. We thought some might say the Douglas DC-7C since the tail of the Carvair is often thought to be from the DC-7C.
Meantime below is entertainment (not the Mystery Photo):
Which airplane is this from?
Damn, you readers are good. But no, we didn’t take the photo. We also thought you might have guessed the Comet, from which the Caravelle got its cockpit.
