Photo Comment

A regular visitor of Miami's international airport, taxiing to the cargo ramp under the hot Florida sun. During the late 1980s TAN operated two Electras into Miami, HR-TNL and this one. TNL was lost when it crashed into a mountain in March 1990, but TNT soldiered on (later as HR-SHN of SAHSA). In April 1997 it was sold to Conair in Canada as C-FZCS and was converted to water bomber. By 2017 it still served in that role in Canada with Air Spray, fighting forest fires as Tanker 87.
