Colonial Airlines  Douglas DC-3  N21759           (c/n  2238)


                                             With the presidential campaign of 1952, the airliner more or less took over precinct stomping
                                              normally done by the railroads.  N21759 is seen here wearing a "Vets for Ike" slogan on the
                                              starboard side, next to the door of this (now white topped) 1940 ex Canadian Colonial DC-3.
                                              As a war hero of enormous [popularity, Eisenhower appealed to many ex-G.Is as evidenced
                                              by the "GICARAVAN" over the Colonial roundel.   N21759 was absorbed by Eastern in 1956.
