A clear blue sky, a classic, colourful aircraft and a classical structure which identifies this busy airport. What more could one ask! Sadly, two and a half years later on 25 September 1978, another clear blue sky day, this aircraft and a Cessna 172 (N7711G) had a fatal mid-air collision over San Diego, California, claiming the lives of all 135 on board and seven on the ground.

Sadly, this beautiful bird crashed at Nile and Dwight st intersection, in North Park, San Diego, killing the 135 persons on board, the 2 Cessna pilots and 7 persons on the ground. Rest in peace.

Despite the tragic demise of this airframe, this is a wondelful photo. The futuristic structure in the background is clearly visible with no other buildings crowding around it like today. The sky is clear with no clouds and the angle of the sun is perfect to show off the lines and colors of the aircraft, along with the ground equipment. R.I.P., N533PS...

Very nice picture of this beautiful bird, sadly destroyed with the loss of all on board in an accident that made headlines in newspapers around the world. Those two photos taken by Hans Wendt, showing the stricken airliner plunging to destruction, are some of the most shocking of all time. Rest in peace.

I hate to see a plane with a smile go down! it seems to be at the gate some thing i like about Pacific Southwest Airlines is the smile on their planes sucks that they merged into USAir in 1988
