Photo Comment

Nostalgia on final for runway 01R… During the mid 1980s Hawaiian Air briefly operated a service into Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport. It was always flown by this aircraft, which was their only DC-8-63. It was leased only two months before this shot was made (ex Iberia/Aviaco EC-BQS), and operated for ten years, until sold to Airborne Express as N822AX in 1994 and converted to a freighter. By 2003 it had been withdrawn from use.
