About This File
FS2004 1956 Pan American Douglas DC-7C Seven Seas. Part of the CalClassic Archive Project. The Douglas DC-7C Seven Seas in Pan American World Airways colors, circa 1956 to 1958. Pan American needed an aircraft that was able to fly non-stop transatlantic services, even westbound with average winds (their current DC-7B service usually required a stop). Douglas responded by stretching the fuselage by 42 inches and, more importantly, lengthening the wings by inserting a 5 foot extension at each wing root. This gave the new DC-7C Seven Seas (in a clever pun on "7C") not only more room for fuel, but placed the engines further out on the wing, lessening the noise and vibration of the rather loud Wright R-3350 radials. More powerful engines of 3400 hp each were fitted to the DC-7C, and all these improvements stretched the range to 5635 miles, allowing non-stop routes never before possible with Douglas aircraft. The first Seven Seas service was introduced by Pan American on June 1, 1956, and a total of 121 DC-7C's were eventually delivered to the airlines. This is the FS2004 DC-7C Base Pack, add other DC-7C liveries to this package. Requires the FS2004 DC-7 Base Pack for panel and sounds.
