Excellent photo of this ill-fated aircraft. Sadly lost with great loss of lives. Rest in peace.

The 60 series DC-8s were the most elegant of airliners. This picture also shows three Gulfstreams in the background, from the days when three such biz-jets was a good turn out. Note USCG 01 in the middle.
