Photographer's Note

This is a special post for friends Ike and Pierre, who love to photograph these "birds".

Here a veteran Boeing 737-2A1(F), with 2 x Pratt & Whitney JT8D-9 engines, prefix PP-SMB, manufactured on 05/14/1969 and delivered to VASP together with PP-SMA, PP-SMC and PP-SMD, the first 4 737 were delivered in Latin America, on 07/18/1969. He flew with passengers until 09/1991 and was converted to a freighter and engines replaced by the JT8D-17A, other implements, such as GPWS, GPS and TCAS. His last flight was 04/02/2005 to Manaus, where he was abandoned. In 2014, it was auctioned off at Vasp's bankruptcy and transported in trucks to Nanuque, MG, where it is preserved. A commercial enterprise will be built there.
