The "ATN720" is the last regular flight operated with DC-8 in Europe. At the time ATI have only Two DC-8, this one and N71CX, with the old P&W engines.

I like this one because most of the planes landing at lajas came in on a wing and a prayer during the bad weather which was most of the time

Great photo, seems the pilot had a challenging landing. 5 stars!

Very dramatic shot. Makes me wonder what might had happened to that airliner shortly after the "click" of
the photographer's camera. There is a clear feeling of uncertainty regarding the end of that flight.5* from me. Ilias.

Beautiful photo of a beautiful aircraft. The CFM-56s were the perfection of this plane.
