This is the view of the aircraft preserved outside at the TWA Museum. TWA used JetStars as pilot trainers so it is nice that the TWA Museum has added this example (although it never actually flew for the airline) to its collection at MKC.

This Mad Dog was originally delivered in October 1987 to Spantax (Guiness Peat, hence the subsequent use of its Irish reg.) as EC-EFJ (EC-102) and then to LAC (as EI-BWD) and BWIA (9Y-THT) before joining TWA and becoming the special 'Wings of Pride' logojet. Its last revenue flight for American was during Feb. 2014 before being banished to Roswell, so it's really great that the TWA Museum has saved this piece of airline history from the axeman.

A flying visit to MKC meant, unfortunately, that I had no time to enter properly the Airline HIstory Museum but it was still nice to see thise beautifully restored Classic just from the outside. Note N948TW in the background at the TWA Museum.
