Seen holding near fence for traffic landing runway 27. Other serials - OO-VGP & OO-PVG with DAT - Delta Air Transport, EC-WTC & EC-ATC with Iberia, N44828 with American Inter-Island, and also PP-YRI with Varig and REAL Transportes Aereos. Sadly, W/O December 16, 1984 with Air Resorts Airlines as N44828 at JFX (Jasper, Alabama) with engine problems, and right main landing gear tires failing on touch down, the aircraft veered right off runway into a ditch with main landing gear collapsing. r.i.p. old girl!
