Photo Comment

Short-lived and last incarnation of the Braniff airline name, operating for only one year, from July 1991 until July 1992. Although this former Eastern Air Lines 727 looks smart in these blue Braniff colours, the paint job is clearly starting to wear off. Perhaps an ominous sign, because only a month later the airline ceased operations. This aircraft was first stored at Mojave and later at Miami, and scrapped there during 1998.
