Photo Comment

First scanned by request from the son of an Aerocondor and ARCA pilot that used to fly this DC-8. Taken under an angry sky on my way down to Colombia for the first time, this DC-8 is painted in quasi-Alitalia colours to match others in the fleet, but was actually ex-Braniff and in their red livery on acquisition in 2.80. First del to National as N875C in 4.62, becoming N812BN in 9.73. Wfu at MIA in 9.88. Had reg PR-SKY reserved but b/u by 2001
