This Day in History: 
December 21, 1955

Douglas's DC-7C long-range airliner makes its first flight powered by four Wright R-3350 turbo compound piston engines, each rated at 3250 hp. The 5 ft greater wingspan of the Seven Seas extends its range to 4000 mi. The ultimate America piston-engine airliner, the DC-7C serves into the era of the first jets.

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.
