In 1985 this CC-130H Hercules and a sistership were destroyed in an accident following a mid-air collision over Edmonton-Namao Field, AB (YED), Canada. All five crew members aboard each plane were killed. The aircraft were part of the three-ship formation taking part in a fly-past to mark the 61st anniversary of the Royal Canadian Air Force.
In July 2009 LX/Swiss were celebrating 30 years of continous service from Zurich to my home airport Nuernberg. To honour this occasion, Swiss came in with an A340 instead of the regular Avroliner. It is also the reason I uploaded this image from my archive, the Metroliner of Crossair was the first aircraft type used on this route.
Actually this is line number 6 of all 707s built. Delivered originally to Pan Am as N712PA in 1958, it is pictured on taxiway 'Foxtrot' in front of a spring shower, having just arrived on the weekly service from Istanbul.
