Thanks to Joe Crider for this photo of the aircraft after it landed.
The aircraft involved in this incident, N65276, was called by pilots the "suicide 3". It was in three confirmed serious accidents - the last fatal. On December 21, 1967 it crashed and burned at Denver, killing Capt. Rocky Crane and FO Rick Cochran. It was being used as a freighter that day.
Read the pilot's report on the incident and his supervisor's comments. Thanks to Ken Schultz for sending this report.
