What a fantastic view from the restored Eastern Airlines DC-7B. The crew at Opa Locka have done a magnificent job restoring this aircraft to flying status. The day may have been gray and drizzling, but the ride was fantastic. After departing Teterboro we headed down the Hudson River paralleling the New York City skyline. This shot shows those powerful prop engines directly above the Intrepid Sea and Air Museum. Look close and you can see another fantastic aircraft, the BA Concorde.
