The Boeing 727 continued to deviate further below the glideslope, and at 16:05:06.2, when the aircraft was at 150 feet, the captain said, "runway in sight." Less than a second later, the first officer said, "I got it." The captain replied, "got it?" and a second later, at 16:05:10, an unintelligible exclamation was recorded, and the first officer commanded, "Takeoff thrust."  These were the last words recorded in the cockpit of Eastern Flight 66, a Boeing 727 on approach at JFK.  Join us as we remember on the 47th Anniversary of this tragic flight in EAL history.  We depart the Gate at 7 pm EDT.  We'll see you at the Gate. www.blogtalkradio.com/capteddie  Call-in 213-816-1611
