I used to fuel this aircraft at LAX. My autograph is on the inside of the fuel door somewhere on the bottom of the ocean.

A visitor from Brazil posted Wed June 25, 2008:
Sadly, this aircraft was a victim of the Cold War and the Iron Curtain. Unfortunatelly, all 269 on board were killed in an act of war. We will never forget them.
