Discovery Channel’s Curiosity Series: Plane Crash; where is Big Flo (Boeing 727)?

Regular readers of Airways Magazine got the inside story of Discovery Channel’s Documentary Plane Crash. The article series included everything except where Big Flo (B-727) ended up.

Here she is; recycled as a future restaurant. That came as quite a surprise! An old squadron mate from the VAQ-137 Rooks, on his annual Baja motorcycle ride,big flo at rest (2)

saw her near Mexicali and took this picture. It’s eerily reminiscent of a chapter in my first book, Project 7 Alpha. In fact it is right out of the the novel!

The engines were gone and the tail removed, I assume to get under power lines etc. It was off the crash site with in hours.
