The DC-7 was Douglas’ last major piston engine-powered transport aircraft. Built 1953 - 1958, it entered the American Airlines flagship service on its New York-Los Angeles route, becoming the first airliner to offer nonstop transcontinental service in both directions, flying westbound against the prevailing winds. 44924 began its career with American Airlines in 1956, eventually being converted to a freighter in later years, most notably with Ortner Air Service in Ohio. Walter Soplata acquired its cockpit and other fuselage sections during the 1970s from the Ortners.
-Authentic - made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal.
-Unique - 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.
-Collectible - each one is numbered in a limited edition and comes attached to a display card.
-Versatile - comes with a durable metal ring, strong enough to attach to luggage or keys or display.
