N6134A (cn 1125) Seems like an awfully shallow climbout, but it makes for a great shot. Taken by my great-uncle and scanned from a slide.

One of my favorites, rode on an AA Electra in 1962 from Port Columbus to Love Field. Great shot!

The Lockheed Electra L-188 was a well designed, confortable, fast, efficient, powerful aircraft. This type gave VARIG 29 years of great service and was loved by all passengers and crew.

Wow! You can actually see the passengers! Love this photo of a fantastic old airliner!

A visitor from United States posted Sat January 22, 2011:
Love that American livery. Too bad this aircraft suffered from so many accidents. Also, had a short life because it was a transition from props to jets.

Great airplane that suffered some tragic accidents. It did not last long because it was a transition from props to jets.

Beautiful shot of an old classic girl. AA logo and colors, plus the orange detail on the engines that continue on to the prop spinners make this picture exciting on several levels.
