VASP MD-11 (48413/488) PP-SOW

Captured on short final to Rwy 24R at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX/KLAX) on November 10, 1997.

Delivered to the carrier on Valentines Day February 14, 1992, she served with the carrier until finding her way to Varig as PP-VQL on May 12, 2000.

Following her conversion into a cargo aircraft in 2005, she went into service with Lufthansa Cargo as D-ALCO flying for the German carrier until being WFU on December 21, 2013.

Ferried to Tulsa International Airport (TUL/KTUL) on January 23, 2014 she sat in storage until sadly meeting her fate and being broken-up at Tulsa sometime in 2014 from what info I can gather.
