The Douglas DC-7C was created to meet a Pan American requirement for an aircraft that could routinely perform non-stop transatlantic flights in both east and west directions. Douglas responded by stretching the DC-7B fuselage by 42 inches and lengthening the wings by inserting a 5-foot extension at each wing root. This gave the new DC-7C more room for fuel, and placed the engines further away from the fuselage, reducing the noise and vibration of the loud Wright R-3350 radials. The Douglas “Seven Seas”, a play on the 7C designation, became the first word in transcontinental travel with 121 aircraft delivered to various airlines.
