National Airlines   Douglas DC-7                 N8205H               (c/n   44171)


                                  N8205H was delivered new to National in 1953.  The DC-7s were usurped in the early 1960s
                                  by first, the turbo-props, and later the pure jets.  Hence their tenure with the major airlines tended
                                  to be short.  This aircraft was withdrawn from use in 1964, stored in the Arizona desert for a
                                  couple of years, and then broken up.  An ignomious end for such a fair lady.
