Remark Photographer
N8859E / 410 (cn 20621/904) The sign message is almost appropriate for this scenario. Ex-Eastern and Pan Am. This photo was taken several hours after Hurricane Andrew devastated the southern part of Dade County. High winds at MIA blew this bird into the canal and it never flew again. It was scrapped in 1996 at MIA.

The aircraft crossing sign must be replaced with "aircraft sinking"

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 5, 2012:
This is what hurricanes do to planes, when it gets the opportunity. Look up some of the historical photos of Hurricane David when it hit Hispaniola - prominent is a picture of a upside-down DC-3 deposited ON TOP of a hangar, by that storm.

Thanks again to Don for all the memories shared!

Ouch. 727s must be LIGHT!

A visitor from United States posted Sat March 7, 2009:
LOL, now we should really pay attention to signs...:)

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 30, 2008:
Brush up on your history. Braniff was reincarnated twice after the original went BK in 1982. The third incarnation brought back the Braniff International "Flying Colors" for a brief period before going out of business for good. So the date on this photo is indeed acurate, not from the "late '70's". Great shot, Don!

A visitor from United States posted Sat May 10, 2008:
Braniff went Bk in about 1982. What would a plane decked out in full Braniff colors have been doing at Miami in August of 1992? Translation: I think the photo dates from no later that the early '80's

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 29, 2007:
Braniff put an end to the plain plane and sadly this was the end of this aircraft’s career.

A visitor from United States posted Thu September 7, 2006:
Sad ending to a classinc plane with a classic livery, the Braniff "Flying Colors"

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon September 4, 2006:
Gr8 photo, love the sign

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 4, 2006:
It looks shiny and brand new! Too bad...
Funny how all the colors match, green and red.

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 4, 2006:
Nice photo UD. Would really love to see you upload more of your old MIA gems you have stashed away in that closet of yours. :)

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 3, 2006:
Wow! Glad to hear the plane was unoccupied. It also makes it understandable that Continental moved its Houston fleet to El Paso during the hurricanes last year. Thanks for uploading!

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 3, 2006:
I can't believe the winds were strong enough to move a 727!

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 3, 2006:
Sad story about the plane, but good thing nobody was hurt. What makes it funny is the "Aircraft Crosssing" sign.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 3, 2006:
The sign makes the photo

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Sun September 3, 2006:
Funny! Thanks for sharing. Sad the plane was scraped though.
