This Day in History: 
November 23, 1953

During a delivery flight from the manufacturer to National Airlines, a Douglas DC-7 transport establishes a Los Angeles to Miami speed record of 5 hr 50 min, an average of 401 mph. At times the DC-7 attained an airspeed of 436 mph. Powered by four 3250hp Wright Turbo-Compound radial piston engines, the DC-7 can cruise at 360 mph with a load of 60 passengers on a transcontinental flight.

The American Aviation Historical Society, organized more than fifty years ago, is dedicated to documenting and sharing information about the people, places, planes and events that comprise American aviation. The Society is a registered 501.3.c non-profit educational organization and welcomes all individuals with an interest in American aviation to its membership.
