Re: AA191 40 Year Anniversary coming up

It may be a 707 but it does not appear to be TWA. TWA had twin red stripes that got lower and thicker as they wrapped around the rear of the plane. This plane seems to have a single red stripe that is the same thickness and does not wrap around the fuselage. When looking at the fireball photo, whic...
