I've managed to see a Pan Am 727 on approach to MHT a few times. I must
admit it's kinda cool to see the "wingleted" plane as it turns final..this morning
I saw it as it appeared from clouds as it turned..nice sight to see.

Pan Am 759 went down in July,1982 operated by 727-200 "Clipper Defiance" on a MIA-MSY-LAS route. Windshear caused the flight to go down. Nothing to make light of, over 140 people lost their lives that day.

Here is a sentimental shot of one of the smoky old 727s on final into MIA this past Sunday. Quite ironic how rare this sight is at MIA, as it taxied over to Signature FBO on the north side of the field, close to the spot where the original Pan Am started out at MIA decades ago.
