Everything is almost ready on ship 702 for pushback procedures to begin as the tug driver receives the ok from the flight deck. To my eyes, there was nothing unusual with those procedures, but history made a twist and few weeks later American Trans Air went bankrupt after flying for more than 35 years. They only operated briefly with DC-10's and it is said that the purchase of those mighty three holers played an important role on the sad end of company. Sad to see classic aviation disapear like that.
