Douglas DC-7 C Swissair #RL0138
Douglas DC-7 C Swissair
Civil Aircraft

The four-engine DC-7 commercial airliner and all its variants, was built by the Douglas Aircraft Corporation from 1953 through 1958.  It was the Douglas Aircraft Corporation’s last major piston powered aircraft before the four-jet engine Douglas DC-8.  A decision to design and produce the DC-7, was only made after American Airlines stepped forward with an order of 25 aircraft. Throughout the 1950s and early 1960s, the DC- 7 competed on domestic and international routes with the Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation.  The DC-7 C, which is the subject of this scaled model, was an improved long-range variant with a non-stop trans-continental and Atlantic Ocean capability.  Before production had ceased, approximately 121 DC-7 C’s had been manufactured.  The Douglas DC-7 C could carry 105 passengers and included the following crew: 1) Two pilots; 2) Flight engineer and 3) 4 flight attendants.  The operational characteristics of the DC-7 C are as follows: 1) Top speed of just over 400 mph; 2) Range of about 5,600 miles and 3) Service ceiling of just over 28,000 feet.  This Douglas DC-7 C Swissair scaled model is a 1997 reissue of the famous original “S” release and includes the following features: 1) Authentic colorful Swissair markings for the national airline of Switzerland; 2) Detailed engines; 3) Globe swivel display base; 4) Recessed panel lines and 5) Illustrated assembly instructions.  The box is in Like-New condition.  Never started and factory sealed.
