I didn't know Eastern was operating 747's. I flew a lot with this company in the late 80's.... good memories

Beatufiul bird... i believe the *737* signify the ship number, as the Reg is N737PA ..

One of the best airlines that has disappeared showing this 747 with "737" on the fuselage... Can it be better?

Eastern leased a couple of 747's in the early seventies until the L-1011 came along.

I love how it has the core exhaust thrust reversers installed! So vintage ;)

Eastern's livery on Pan Am's jumbo. Two classics long gone, shame!
