Caption
After her first 14 years spent with KLM as "Sir Isaac Newton", this DC-8 was sold to Viasa in 1975. Although bought by Aeronaves del Peru in 1984, she remained in store at Opa Locka as was broken up next year. We take for granted nowadays a choice of views to shoot thanks to zoom lenses, but it occurs to me that the angle here was forced by my old fixed 200mm
