F/F 20/03/70 & D/D 03/04/70 to Trans World Airlines, she was the 28th Boeing 747 to be built. She was re-registered N608FF with Tower Air 25/03/92. Wfu at Victorville, CA 08/00, & scrapped by 01/06. Parts of her fuselage & wings were utilised in the construction of a house in Malibu. It amazes me how small her Pratt & Whitney JT9D-7A engines seem when compared to today's engines, after 50 years of development. Scanned from a Kodachrome 64 slide.
