Unfortunately, this jewel was lost on June 2nd 2012. After touching down in Accra, Ghana, the pilots were unable to stop it, overshot the runway, hit the fence and subsequently hit a minibus, all of it's occupants (10) died. The crew of four (?) survived with minor injuries. The plane was written off, so sad when a jewel like this is destroyed, accidents reduces them, as they're no longer manufactured. May the victims of this terrible accident rest in peace.

Unfortunately this historic bird (former Clipped Goodwill, the plane that operated Pan Am's last revenue flight in December 1991) crashed not too long ago :( a sad end for such a significant aircraft.
