I had the honor to be invited to have a good look inside and out of the only passenger flying DC-7B in existence, at Opa-Locka airport (Miami).

N836D is a former Eastern Air Lines restored DC-7B, now in flying condition and based at Opa-Locka. The whole story can be read at the article I wrote for Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N836D_DC-7B

or by doing a Google search to see their site and news about her restoration to flying status.

Those are great. I remember going to the airport to watch the planes with my Dad. Those planes were state of the art back then. Thanks Alex!

Not cheap. It costs a fortune to run as you can imagine. They do flights every so often. About $250 to $300 for a shortish flight. They even went to St. Maarten once. That cost way more.
