[PICS] GCLB 18/04/2017

El Berriel Aerodrome. A small airport on the isle of Gran Canaria. Asked a local pilot to go airside and to take some shots. He allowed me to take shots from the stored aircraft and from the local aeroclub aircraft.
The DC-7 is the last built DC-7. Built in 1958, it was delivered to Swissair. Then it went to SAS followed by JAL where it dit it's first commercial flights. In 1965 it was sold to the Spanish airline Spantax with registration EC-BBT. It flew the route Madrid - Canary islands. Taken out of service in 1978, it was donated to the Aeroclub in El Berriel. In 2015, Binter restored the aircraft and painted it in their current livery.

Hope you like them.
