What are the chances, both of these imfamous Pan Am 747s in the same photo and parked right next to one another. The gloomy weather does indeed set the tone.

Such a shame what had happened to Pan Am. I mean, not really the airline fault… They could be the largest airline in the world today.

The grey weather does set the tone for this photo. A truly memmorable shot. Who would've thought the two aircrafts parked side by side would both crash, claiming hundreds of lives...

Truly a photo full of forboding. That's an awful lot of airliner to write off.

I live near to Clipper Maid of the Seas final resting place, it's haunting to see her back when she was still in use, such a tragic waste

You seem to have a knack for photographing doomed airliners, here you have the two Panam 747's, and another photo you also have the LOT Ilyushin. Great photos

I had flown on all four of these beautiful birds. Oh the memories that I still have of the great Pan Am in the 70's and early 80's

A beautiful picture with the most famous airline livery ever put on a plane. Funny that 736 & 739 would be together again in a couple of other pictures found here on airliners. How many more times were they side to side and then to loose these hulls on two of the the most notorious air disasters to ever happen. One in the biggest air crash ever, the other in a terrorist attack that also sealed the fate of this airline.
