Most likely last DC7 flight ever

Erickson Aero Tanker’s DC-7B N838D Tanker #60 departed Medford, Oregon for a final time returning to Madras, Oregon on October 14, 2020 after fighting wild fires in Oregon this summer. The flight could very well be the last ever DC-7 flight as there are no other operating DC-7s in the world and Erickson’s 2021 contract with Oregon doesn’t include DC-7 tankers. In a fitting tribute, the aircraft performed a final retardant dump adjacent to a highway that had been blocked off for the occasion.
