From GW#2 data, may 59.

But better not use this thread for that (as it's intended to post request/data about missing planes)

Thanks.

Apologies.

Since the DC7-F was available with the DC7B IRL it is technically currently 'missing'

All historical records I've seen suggest the first DC7 freighter (of any variant) was the DC7CF rolled out:

If you have sources or even a pic dating in 1957 of a flying DC7BF please share :)

Production list here shows DC7-Bs converted to freighters

http://rzjets.net/aircraft/?page=5&typeid=209

However, I have found quite a few places on the net reporting that Douglas offered the conversion from 1959 so not missing yet

Thanks for the understanding
