    The first 707 shot would belong to the Spanish Air Force.

    wow, now that is cool.

    Glad to know the voluptuousness of South Beach didn't keep me from looking up! I was sitting in front of Mangoes when she flew over.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Congrats on the baby's first trip Mario! Glad to hear he took to it well! That 762 takeoff is just awesome, definitely one of my favorite birds. I don't know how you got on the A300 though, I still can't bring myself to do it...

    Thank you sir! Yes I was really impressed with it. I've flown them many times before but this takeoff seemed much more, aggresive, if you will.


    The A300 had to be done. But truth be told, its a really roomy cabin. I liked it. I was very impressed with it. Even liked how if you stand in front and look back, the whole cabin sweeps upward.

    Have another trip coming up for business. Flying AA on their, 763, MD80, 757 and 737. It'll be nice to have flwon all of AA's A/C types within the last year and will allow me to draw a more accurate comparison.

    Hey Mario,

    great trip report! I'm glad that the little guy enjoyed his first flight...apparently I was a mess on my first trip, haha. Not common these days to catch two 707s on a trip unless you happen to go to Nigeria or something - I'm jealous. See you soon man, hopefully! :D

    Greets,

    Just a quick FYI on the Spanish AF 707. I read an article today that said the UK actually contracted the aircraft to fly a detachment of troops to Belize. So I would assume it was making a pit stop for fuel.
