Today at school in an old pile of magazines I found a "The New York Times Magazine" dated Novermber 6, 1988. On the cover it had a very odd looking plane. It has an MD-80 like tail, but with 2 wing mounted engines. Looks like they messed up on the design. The article name is "Tearing Apart Eastern Airlines" by William Stockton. Has anyone else seen this?

I'm not seeing the picture either. I can guess what the article is about. How many times is Frank Lorenzo mentioned.
BTW, William Stockton seems to be knowledgable about Eastern Airlines. He wrote a full-length book about the crash of Eastern 212 in September of 1974 just south of the Charlotte, NC airport (both pilots misread their altimeters). It's called "Final Approach: the Crash of Eastern 212".
