Wearing "Western Express" colors, this Skywest Metroliner awaits take-off clearance runway 27. Other serials - N26895 with Finova, and also SX-BGG with Kal Aviation. Sadly, W/O July 28, 1999 at Rhodes, Greece with Kal Aviation as SX-BGG. On approach to RHO, both engines failed causing crew to carry out forced landing short of runway by seashore - no fatalities. The ABX DC-9F comes from PHX in early morning, and returns to PHX in early evening. On some days this flight is operated with DC-8-62F aircraft.
