Is that the one that crashed up in the Midwest? What a cryin' shame, but I heard the crew did get out ok.

Just saw the crash news, amazing that the 7 crew members got away from it.

I've seen the 'Aluminum Overcast' on the two occasions it has been to Arlington. Great to see & photograph and especially to hear those engines.

I had the pleasure of this POTD shot. More images here ==> http://bobbrennan.smugmug.com/Photog...61519632_PG4FN

Ouch...! that's sad. Glad they all got OK.

I was invited to work on one of these guys about 15 years back, work and travel spoilt that though.

Nice shot Bob, I can see what that was POTD.

Pilot did a great job getting it down and everyone out safely. What a beautiful plane it was. A work of art.

I had to click on that last pic to get a larger view. What I thought, at first, to be a couple well placed rivets really are just paint...
