"Clipper Defender". Also "Clipper Belle of the Sea". Clipper 1 heavy from JFK is seen on short final landing runway 24R, routing round-the-world, westbound. Did you notice she is carrying a 5th engine, next to engine number 2 & the fuselage? First flight was January 19, 1970. Delivery date was February 5, 1970. Wears FN 738 with Pan Am. Sadly, W/O August 4, 1983 at KHI (Karachi) with Pan Am as N738PA after she was damaged beyond economical repair due from hard landing during a very severe storm.
