This Boeing B747SP, known as Clipper America, experienced its last flight yesterday after serving many owners—beginning with Braniff and Pan Am—ending with Ballet San Jose and the San Jose Sharks—with many in between. Landing at the Mojave Air & Space Port (also serving as an airliner storage/boneyard facility) its fate awaits. Recycling most likely, scrapping most assuredly, restoration unlikely.
