American DC-6

In the late 1950s and early 1960s, American Airlines  operated Flight 212, a transcon DC-6 voyage from LAX to LGA, via SAN, PHX, TUS, DUG, ELP, MAF, FTW, DAL, TYS, BNA, DCA and PHL ....   When I worked at a travel agency in La Jolla, CA, we'd occasionally book some little old lady on that trip out of San Diego, because she refused to change planes on the way back to see the grandchildren, despite our assurances that she could make one plane change in Chicago and get there in less than half the time!  N90726, Flagship Memphis is seen at New York-LGA on July 27, 1962 shortly before I boarded her for a hop to Syracuse.  I don't know where it had come in from, but who knows? It could have been Flight 212.
