Photo Comment

Scouting CVG this day I spotted a Delta CV880 and two of their three L100s on the freight ramp. I learned that the 880 needed an engine and 9258R had flown one up from ATL--but lost it's number 3 engine (which is feathered), so 9268R had to fly an engine in for it. This aircraft was destroyed in a fire with Northwest Territorial Airways in 1982.
