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?!

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 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!)
