The doomed American Airlines DC-10 is a VERY sad sight. That is a famous picture. I feel sorry for all the family of those on board the DC-10 and may god blesss it's passengers.

The 707 is the water was the coolest thing I have ever seen. I would have loved to have been on that plane. You know that had to be a ride. I would have probably been like, "Can we do it again?!?!". I am just thankful nobody was hurt. Where is the 707 now? They did pull it out of the water didn't they?!

I am pretty sure they did. If they didn't, it would certainly be a great place to open a resturant.

LOL, yeah it would. Do you know anything about a 707 that fell short of the runway here at SFO? My Dad told me once about a 707 that fell short and ended up in the Bay, just like the one in your picture.

I would hope it would be Middle-Eastern or Mediteranean food!

I can confirm that many years back...an airliner crashed short of the runway at SFO. Unfortunately, I don't know the airline or the aircraft. I'm pretty sure it was in the 60s or 70s. Hopefully someone else can shed some light on this incident.

The aircraft that crashed at SFO was a Japan Airlines DC-8 in 1968. The aircraft was recovered and repaired. Here is a photo of the aircraft on a barge being returned to the airport for repair (very interesting shot!)

It can't be JAL. Look carefully. The liveries of the planes are different.

That AA pic reminds me of the PSA 727 photo...turns my stomach upside down...still I can't stop looking at them.

On the ligher side - if they opened a restaurant in the 707, they would probably serve sea-food.   "Pick your own fish swimming by your knees and we'll cook it!"

Re the DC10 shot, it might just be cos of the magnification, but to me it looks like the right engine was departing as well at that point.

That is the old-old livery of JAL which they used throughout the 50's and 60's. Click on the photo to enlarge it and you can't possibly miss the title "Japan Air Lines".

I read that the 707 hulk was not pulled out of the water at all; rather, it was towed close to shore and moored, and used as a beacon! I don't know if it's still there, however.
