What a great photo. From the fame of the early days hauling passengers to the conversion to a freight hauler and ultimately touching down for retirement at a third world bone yard. What a fulfilling service life.

What a shame to see such a once beautiful aircraft in a state like this.

What a beautiful aircraft! Why are the engines left with the fuselage and the wing assembly? My guess is they are non working anymore, or they just ditched them for no reason. If it were me, I'd get a license and fix one or two of them up!

Built by skilled engineers and technicians in Seattle, Washington and now being cannibalized by scrap collectors in the African jungle. The stories this old bird could tell us.
