Photo Comment

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 later some old 747s surpassed it. It was withdrawn from commercial use in October 1988, by which time it accumulated an amazing total time of 91,402 hours, an absolute record for any pre-1970s aircraft. In 1993 it entered at long-term restoration project, and it is now preserved in Eastern's "The Great Silver Fleet" livery as NC18121.
