OK, not the best quality by a long shot, but it does show the World Trade Center, directly above the nose of the aircraft, while it was still under construction. Who back then would have believed the fate of those buildings and the relationship they ended up having with aviation.

First of all, great shot. Also, 1 world trade center aka. north tower was finished at this point in time, but tower 2, aka south tower was still under construction. An image that we will never be able to take again (no WTC and no AA DC10).
