Bitter Sweet Photo....

Fri Apr 25, 2003 2:39 am

I came across this photo and almost began to cry. This plane use to be nothing but a strictly CIN-ATL work horse and now, its on the other side of the world, like it's been kicked out of its home into a new and different world...

But im happy to see that she's still gracing the skies and not suffering under the chopping block in the desert like so many of her sisters....

The pic description says: Swiftair has added this former Delta 727 to its fleet which will be used on behalf of the Spanish authorities to return foreigners without valid residence papers back home.
