Crashed on approach to Calgary Aug 24, 1963.
This classic seaplane, built in 1952, rests leisurely on the banks of the Colorado River on a lazy Sunday morning near Needles, California.
I quite like the new American Airlines scheme and when I now see the old scheme it reinforces how good the new one looks, especially in nice sunny conditions like this with this great background.
Busy afternoon traffic; N7142C in the background.
The prototype Electra was refurbished and sold to to PSA.
Being pulled off the gate only 3 days after delivery to PSA.
Awaiting delivery to its new owner; re-registered CC-CDN. Bob Proctor photo/Jon Proctor Collection
