'Propliner' is actually short for 'Proper airliner, with big rumbly radials'

Your right there Mike. The Connies were nice , but for me, the DC-7 was the peak of piston engine passenger aircraft.
Interesting to note that Douglas planned a DC-8 (piston-engined) about 10 years before the jet version arrived .......https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_D ... n_airliner), but it wasn't a goer, and maybe that's a good thing.

Mike the trip that those shots are taken from is just made for us. Start off in Florida, fly on the old lady to Puerto Rico, have a 3-hour break, and then on to St Marteen ...enjoy the spotting and the nightlife, and reverse the trip the following day.
