How could you have known that half of the Pan Am 747's in that photo would be destroyed in accidents? very moving picture, with the planes and the weather...

What are the chances, both of these imfamous Pan Am 747s in the same photo and parked right next to one another. The gloomy weather does indeed set the tone.

Such a shame what had happened to Pan Am. I mean, not really the airline fault… They could be the largest airline in the world today.

The grey weather does set the tone for this photo. A truly memmorable shot. Who would've thought the two aircrafts parked side by side would both crash, claiming hundreds of lives...

Truly a photo full of forboding. That's an awful lot of airliner to write off.

I live near to Clipper Maid of the Seas final resting place, it's haunting to see her back when she was still in use, such a tragic waste

You seem to have a knack for photographing doomed airliners, here you have the two Panam 747's, and another photo you also have the LOT Ilyushin. Great photos

I had flown on all four of these beautiful birds. Oh the memories that I still have of the great Pan Am in the 70's and early 80's
