Photo Comment

This Mad Dog was originally delivered in October 1987 to Spantax (Guiness Peat, hence the subsequent use of its Irish reg.) as EC-EFJ (EC-102) and then to LAC (as EI-BWD) and BWIA (9Y-THT) before joining TWA and becoming the special 'Wings of Pride' logojet. Its last revenue flight for American was during Feb. 2014 before being banished to Roswell, so it's really great that the TWA Museum has saved this piece of airline history from the axeman.
