Re: A pretty interresting read.

An unknown B727 crashed in Mali last year and is quite possibly the missing N844AA. The UN or NTSB/FAA have never released any further information on the identity of the aircraft??? http://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=20091105-1 http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/8364383.stm N844AA.jpg
