    The Port Authority has short memories (well 35 years isn't that long ago). They should revisit the Supreme Court ruling in the Port Authority's attempts to keep Concorde out in 1977 (DECLINED in a...

    Funny you should ask - I was about to start a similar thread. I was looking at a picture of Lufthansa's B747-8 in Airliners this month, and could not help but think how elegant the Queen of the Skies...

    Truer words have rarely been uttered. As an aviation and diplomatic historian 4 December 1991 is one of the saddest days in recent history. TWA I was never fond of - but then again can you really be...

    For the record, I concur. And of course on a technicality, US Airways did go extinct - they are America West flying as US Airways. And from what I read, the same would happen with AA. So it would be...

    Which would mean that America West, hidden first behind the US Airways brand, and now perhaps the American Airlines brand, would actually end up becoming one of the US's premier international...

    I assume mine was OK as well; I have to admit I was a bit surprised by your comment when I first read it, but if it refers to posts that were removed, then probably deserved.

    I was also largely disappointed that it was heavily tilted towards military. It doesn't mention any of the graveyards for commercial airliners - which are far more interesting to me.

    I was 13 at the time, and was lucky that my mom was fairly tolerant of my plane spotting addiction. We lived in Westchester, and normally I would take the New Haven (in its pre-MTA days) to GCT,...

    I might add to my list the L-1011. I flew mainly Eastern's version, but more than anything I remember the high ceiling; The plane just seemed to have unlimited room inside.

    Thought this might be a fun thread to start.
    In the second chapter of my MA thesis, I make the assertion that the British built two of the most elegant aircraft ever to fly - Comet and Concorde....

    It was a business trip - although flying for me is always fun. I am one of those people who have always felt most comfortable and most relaxed in a plane. I recall more years ago than I like to...

    Partly it is just pure "what you are used to." For the past 15 years, I have flown to and from Europe 2 to 3 times per year. I realized that this was the first time I had not flown American in all...
  16. Five Flights, Five aircraft types, one round trip and one airline

    Just returned from a RDU-ATL-DET-AMS-ATL-RDU trip. There are few highlights flying Delta, but two follow.
