Taxiing into position for takeoff runway 27. Pics were taken from a dirt parking area off Island Ave a couple of hundred feet from the end of runway 27. Great spotter location back then.

Unique vintage shot--probably the only one on-line for this short-lived plane. This a/c crashed on landing at Knoxville, 6 Aug 62. Fortunately, all aboard survived.
