Thanks-- I appreciate the help. I guessed it would have been a DC-6, probably, but I wanted to know for sure. Boise couldn't handle jets before 1964. I've kept a detailed account of all the aircraft I have been on, but in '63 I was too young to remember flying. Likewise, I'm not sure of what kind of jet we connected to in SLC. I know it was Western to LAX, so I would guess a 720...

My step grandpa worked for UA in BOI around that time. He worked there for three decades. I don't have a timeframe but I do remember him speaking of the DC-7. But in 63 I believe it would have been the DC-6.
UA726 continued on for DEN, OMA, DSM, ORD, BOS....or on Sat only adding Hartford between ORD and BOS.
The arrival time in BOS was 2205, or with the stop in Hartford 2248.
This flight as well originated in BOI.

My flight was in Feb. 1963, and according to Stirling's schedule, it would have been a DC-6. It's too bad I was too young to remember it, because I would like to have a memory of a DC-6 or DC-7. Would love to have a chance to fly on one of those again. I do remember the airport in BOI from about 1965 on, though.
