"Clipper Great Republic"; In service 05/1976-05/1986. Photo perspective transforms normally squat "SP" into something bordering on the majestic! I was surprised to see this plane deviate to the left of the runway heading on takeoff, bringing it directly over the Pan Am rooftop parking deck (where I was located) at only a couple hundred feet. Only time I ever saw that happen in my 4 visits to JFK; a dramatic close encounter!
