Was departing runway 27L when it passed behind a Delta DC-9 which had become stuck in the mud just to the right of the runway. The jetblast from the Delta jet caused a compressor stall in the 707's no. 4 engine. Hearing the bang, and believing that their plane had impacted the Delta DC-9, the TWA crew aborted the takeoff, but the plane overran the runway, climbed over an embankment, and came to rest 420 feet from the runway end.

Look, the telephone pole is sheared off yet standing up on the road and you can see the power line strung across the front of the vertical stabilizer like a guitar string. The aircraft was written off and TWA sued Delta for 2.2 million dollars.

EXIF stands for Exchangeable Image File Format. It was developed by the Japanese Electronics Industry Development Association (JEIDA) in an effort to simplify and standardize the exchange of data between imaging devices and software. Exif is a variation of JPEG, used by almost all digital cameras to record extra interchange information to image files as they are taken. The type of information stored in a file varies by camera model, but it can include such things as date and time a photo was taken, resolution, camera settings used for the shot, amount of compression applied, color information, whether or not the flash was fired, shutter speed, name of the camera owner, and so on.

Most photo manipulation software released after 2001 supports the reading of Exif information, however, if you want to ensure that the information is retained within your picture files, you must use software that supports Exif. The Exif information is lost if you save a picture in a program that doesn't support it. There is also specialized software specifically for extracting and editing Exif data.

Please be aware that, while most photos displayed on JetPhotos.Net contain EXIF information, some do not.
