Douglas DC-7 - Tail# N390AA
This PlaneTag is carved and engraved from 'last major piston engine powered aircraft' Douglas DC-7. It was a symbol of a remarkable achievement in aviation as DC-7 was 1st commercial non-stop service flying passengers from New York (East Coast) to Los Angeles (West Coast).
The fastest piston-powered commercial plane in 1954, the DC-7 boasted a speed of 6 miles a minute. It was also the first commercial aircraft built with heat-resistant and lightweight titanium. The DC-7 marked the end of an era as the last of Douglas’s piston-engine airliner designs beginning with the DC-2 in the 1930s. When replaced by jet aircraft in the late 60s, DC-7s found use with travel clubs and as fire fighting aircraft.
Please Note: Colors Of Tag Vary
*Important Notice – Please Read Carefully
PlaneTags are made from real retired aircraft fuselage and are not merely stamped any metal. Each PlaneTag bears the color, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags.
As a result, you will have a limited option to select the color of your PlaneTag. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag.
