American Airlines Douglas DC-7 at The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

The DC-7 was the queen of the skies from 1953-1958 at the twilight of the piston age, before the 707s and DC-8 quickly relegated them to second tier and freighter status. The DC-7 inaugurated non-stop coast-to-coast service in November 1953. The cockpit and front cabin of Flagship Vermont are preserved for walk throughs.
