Photo Comment

Leased to El Al from Flying Tiger Line. This was the aircraft depicted in the 1970 film "Airport". At the end of the movie, N324F is seen on the tail while in the hangar. Joe Patroni walks under the tail of the 707, swinging a box of cigars. He taps the underside of the aircraft with the cigar box. "Nice going, sweetheart," The aircraft was depicted as being as much a hero as the pilots that flew the stricken aircraft in the classic disaster film.
