Douglas DC-7 (N838D) - A quick photo tribute to Erickson Aero Tanker's beautiful Tanker 60 - a 1958 Douglas DC-7B. She started her life with Eastern Air Lines before being converted into a fire bomber.<br /><br />Here she is operating out of the Redmond, Oregon tanker base to make drops on the Green Ridge Fire near Sisters, Oregon back in August. Tanker 60 has been very busy on contract with the State of Oregon this summer, and is currently taking part in heroic efforts by firefighters to slow and stop the fires ravishing the state.<br /><br />Sadly, Tanker 60 is in its last year of service and will be retired after this wildfire season which will be the end of airworthy DC-7s and leaving CL-215s as the last large piston air tankers remaining.<br /><br />A true ending of an era for those of us on the west coast in particular!

A quick photo tribute to Erickson Aero Tanker's beautiful Tanker 60 - a 1958 Douglas DC-7B. She started her life with Eastern Air Lines before being converted into a fire bomber.

Here she is operating out of the Redmond, Oregon tanker base to make drops on the Green Ridge Fire near Sisters, Oregon back in August. Tanker 60 has been very busy on contract with the State of Oregon this summer, and is currently taking part in heroic efforts by firefighters to slow and stop the fires ravishing the state.

Sadly, Tanker 60 is in its last year of service and will be retired after this wildfire season which will be the end of airworthy DC-7s and leaving CL-215s as the last large piston air tankers remaining.

A true ending of an era for those of us on the west coast in particular!

Another Classic ZFW AVIATION>>>>

Great memories at tanker bases when P2V's and these -7's fire up. Always more exciting than hearing a turbine. I started my maint days on Coast Guard HU-15, just don't get the level of greasy hands on a turbine. But you don't get the bleeding knuckels when tearing a turbine down. RIP, legends in the history of aviation.

End of an era. But what an era!

The photographer and his tribute are simply superb!
Maybe those guys up in Alaska can use her for decades to come.
I sure hope so.
Thank you!
