Delivered to Eastern in 1937, this aircraft had the highest flying time of all aircraft in the world at the moment this photo was taken, although by now some old 747s have surpassed it. In 1993 this aircraft reverted to its original registration <a href="http://www.airliners.net/photo/651846/" target="_blank">NC18121</a>, and it is now under restoration at Vancouver/Pearson Field, WA in Eastern's "The Great Silver Fleet" livery. During its active lifespan it accumulated an amazing total time of 91,402 hours, an absolute record for any pre-1970s aircraft.
