This airplane made the news on 04 APR 79 when it, flying as TWA N840TW KJFK-KMSP, went into an uncontrollable dive/spin from FL390 to 5,000 MSL. The captain saved the day by extending the flaps, slats, spoilers, etc. and by commanding the first officer to extend the gear, at over 500 KIAS, slowing the plane but also causing assorted pieces to depart the airplane.
