DC-7 Passenger Plane

The moving of this plane was featured on the television series Shipping Wars. It was purchased in South Florida, the wings were cut off, and it was trailered up I-95 to New Smyrna Beach, where the wings were reattached.

Still not a restaurant, but you can get right up next to it. Nice piece of history, nonetheless.

1950s DC-7 Passenger Plane

This was the last DC-7 production passenger plane made in 1956. #N381AA was decommissioned in 2005 after more than 33,000 hours logged flying passengers and cargo. A local family purchased it with the hopes of turning it into a restaurant.

The silvery airliner is not so out-of-place next to the local airport. DC-7 Grille restaurant seemed to still be on the horizon in mid-2013.
