Pretty sure it's not IDL, almost as sure it's not EWR; MIA's an outside possibility; probably not DCA?

So what about Midway? Where else could one see those two airliners together?

In their April 1958 timetable, Braniff was using the DC-7C at IDL/EWR/DCA/MDW/DAL/HOU/SAT/MIA (plus South America). Of those, in their January 1958 timetable, Capital had Viscount service to the first four.

Great old photo. Midway was a plane-spotters paradise back in the day.

And does anyone remember these? Open House days at airports? Airlines would park some of their latest planes for the public to walk thru and marvel at. I remember a few of these at MDW & ORD when I was a kid.

Well, I have a lot of those either in postcard form or old B&W glossies. Very kool portfolio and I enjoyed looking at them. There are a couple of rather rare birds in there. There are two leased -6's. One -6B of EA and a -6A of NW.

Note the engine differences amongst all the -4's. A recent topic of conversation. Some Pratts and some Wrights.

There is a photo of the busy EA ramp at ATL back in the day-----we were just having a discussion about how busy EA used to be in ATL. I remember that EA ramp just packed with aircraft.

Thanks for posting this!
