American Airlines Boeing 707-123   N7503A         (c/n  17630)


                                                    This shot was taken at LAX in early 1960 whilst I was working for Western Air Lines.
                                                    'Flagship California' was brand new at the time.   They were used on the L.A. - New York
                                                    run.  Note inboard starboard engine has cowling off.     N7503A was converted to a -123B
                                                    in 1961 and scrapped in 1977 (by this time the useful life of airliners had gone from roughly
                                                    eight years of that of a large piston engined type to double that time).  .
