Douglas DC-7B N381AA, a former American Airlines machine from the twilight of the piston-driven age, has been saved from the junkyard by the Perna family, who have had it transported to New Smyrna Beach, Florida where the vintage aircraft will be converted into an aviation-themed restaurant, the DC-7 Grille. The plane started its long commercial career when it joined the American Airlines fleet in 1956, and remained in service through 2007 flying last with Turks Air Cargo, flying freight between Miami, Florida and Nassau, Bahamas.
