N84NA (cn 47837/328) "Clipper Glory of the Skies". Condensation fills all three engine inlets at liftoff from runway 12. No.1 engine is reflected in the lower fuselage portion and the captain is visible in the early morning sunlight.

Great shot. Love the DC-10!

A visitor from France posted Sun February 26, 2012:
Very nice action shot!

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 14, 2011:
My favorite part is how you can see the captain's head compared to the size of the DC-10. It really shows you how big these machines are!!

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 3, 2011:
I love everything about this shot... the DC-10, Pan Am, the condensation in the engines, and the reflection of the wing on the metal of the plane.... LOVE IT. DECronk

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun December 19, 2010:
Never seen DC-10 look so great, my favourite plane, great shot.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 26, 2010:
Beautiful angle. I love the condensation in the engines and the fact that you can see the captain in the cockpit. That, and it's a former National DC-10.

A visitor from - posted Fri June 4, 2010:
A classy airliner and the most classic airline of all... Extremely beautiful picture!

A visitor from Guatemala posted Fri June 5, 2009:
Where is the nose?

A visitor from Singapore posted Tue October 28, 2008:
I've never seen that much condensation.. fantastic shot!

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue October 28, 2008:
Good times, long gone, unfortunately. Wonderful, classic photographs like this help preserve those good memories. Truly outstanding.

A visitor from - posted Fri August 15, 2008:
A supeb picture

A visitor from Spain posted Wed July 9, 2008:
What I love about this shot -apart from the subject and the airline- is how the white nose cone matches the condensation in the intakes.
Although I flew Pan Am plenty of times, never in a DC-10.

A visitor from United States posted Tue March 11, 2008:
Classic Pic. Ah the memories

A visitor from Venezuela posted Mon March 10, 2008:
This is a reminder of two classics: the airline (Pan Am) and the jetliner (DC-10). It looks even better with condensation filling all three engines.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat November 10, 2007:
DC10 taking off, love the fog in the engines.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue August 21, 2007:
awesome picture!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri July 27, 2007:
Magnificent detail and a storied reminder of the world's most famous airline.

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Thu July 19, 2007:
Amazing shot, amazing plane, amazing fog. A+

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri December 15, 2006:

Fantastic shot, brilliant.


A visitor from Australia posted Mon October 2, 2006:
A unique shot which captures the local enviroment that the carrier operated the model in. Also given the shot was taken in Jan '84 it's a reminder of photography before the internet which adds value to this site

A visitor from Canada posted Sat August 26, 2006:
Have never seen engines this foggy!simpleamazing

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 4, 2006:
Wow, thats amazing

A visitor from Ireland posted Mon July 17, 2006:

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 9, 2006:
The condensation covering the engines is awesome I have never seen anything like it!

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 6, 2006:
Two old classics, Pan Am, and DC-10.

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 29, 2006:
Absolutely wonderful shot of a classic bird!

A visitor from Argentina posted Wed May 24, 2006:
Sweet!!! Perfect Mix: Three Holer and The Magestic Pan Am...Sad to see both of them gone

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 19, 2006:
Powerful shot of this memorable distinguished bird.it's also the last plane my dad ever flew for Pan-Am before his retirement.Those were the days when air travel with this airline was a "real trip".

A visitor from United States posted Mon April 17, 2006:
Almost looks like engine covers... neat

A visitor from Belgium posted Sat December 10, 2005:
I do like that old dc-10 the most of all planes. Brilliant picture. I love it

A visitor from Israel posted Sun November 27, 2005:
DC-10 at her glory, perfect timing,perfect pic.
5 stars no doubt!

A visitor from Sweden posted Thu October 6, 2005:
Lovely! I really like older high quality pics like this one. The pilot and the condensation make this pic something extra.
