ONA DC-10 N1033F
(HolidayLiner Enterprise) was the replacement 
a/c for N1032F (the November 12, 1975 JFK crash).  
In late 1976 I visited the Douglas Assembly Plant 
in Long Beach, California and obtained some 
pictures of N1033F being built.  At the time, 
ONA was without a DC-10 aircraft (N1031F 
crashed at Istanbul on January 2, 1976) and 
this caused havoc with the upcoming Spring/
Summer season.  The assembly of N1033F was 
expedited but was not delivered to ONA until 
May 9, 1977.  N1033F was sold to Korean 
Airlines in August, 1978 and re-registered 
as HL-7339.  It was destroyed on December 
23, 1983 after crashing head-on with a PA-31 
Piper Navajo aircraft (South Central Air flt 
59) while the DC-10 was taking off from the 
wrong runway at Anchorage, Alaska.  It overran 
the runway by 1434 feet and was destroyed by 
fire.  There were no fatalities from either 
aircraft.
