Item description

We are pleased to offer for your consideration this lovely postcard view of the MacDonald-Douglas DC-7C aircraft which was operated by Northwest Orient Airlines (Northwest Airlines) from 1953 until 1958. This card was published by Northwest Airlines as a souvenir of a trip aboard these aircraft. The Douglas DC-7 is an American transport aircraft built by the Douglas Aircraft Company from 1953 to 1958. It was the last major piston engine powered transport made by Douglas, coming just a few years before the advent of jet aircraft such as the Boeing 707 and Douglas DC-8. Northwest Airlines, Inc. was a major United States airline founded in 1926 and absorbed into Delta Air Lines by a merger approved on October 29, 2008, making Delta the largest airline in the world.[1] Northwest continued to operate under its own name and brand until the integration of the carriers was completed on January 31, 2010. On October 1, 1986, Northwest merged with Minneapolis-St. Paul-based Republic Airlines in what was, at the time, the largest airline merger in history. Northwest dropped the word Orient from its brand name after the merger. Northwest flew the DC-7C from 1953 until 1960 when it acquired the jet powered DC-8's on it long distance U.S. routes and short overseas routes to from Boston to Britain and Ireland with a refueling stop in Labrador. The front of this card features a view of the aircraft in flight from right to left in a sky filled with numerous puffy white clouds. along the bottom, in a white border is the caption, "Northwest Orient Airlines Imperial Service DC-7C". The back of this card is a divided back postcard with the airline's info as the division. At the top of the division is the logo of the airline and there is no stamp box. The bottom left bears a description of the aircraft and at the bottom of this is the ware number, "PF 16X-57". This card is in Near Mint condition with clean, crisp and sharp corners, no folds or creases and no writing on the card. This card was never posted in the mail. This card will be a fantastic addition to your collection of Northwest Airlines mementos, Airline souvenir postcards, views of commercial aircraft in flight, and views of the MacDonald-Douglas DC-7C.
