One of the last of the majestic propliners, a Douglas
DC-7C operated by Braniff International Airways climbs
out of Rio de Janeiros' Galeao Airport. Named for its
ability to span all oceans, the Douglas DC-7C "Seven
Seas" was the final piston model of the famous "DC"
series produced by the Douglas Aircraft Company.
Designed to provide the ultimate in speed and luxury
for commercial air travelers the model was short lived
as the mainstay of international aircarriers. After only a
few short years the DC-7Cs were pushed off to shorter
routes by the new commercial jets.
