    OK now you're just making sense but we all know some airlines are not that daring, which is a shame.

    i loved that scheme on the 707,and early 747s.
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!

    Nice Shots Rich,
    I shot that Chinese ACJ at EWR last week.

    I did see the ORF VIP heading to the US and was hoping he was coming to NY, NJ but oh well.

    That DC-9 is a good catch. Its still in the basic livery of "Legend Airlines" I shot that plane what is probably 13 years ago and its still in the same colors and titles still. Would be nice in a team theme.

    Rich this set makes Logan look like it's way better than JFK holly crap I couldn't take my eyes off. Does anyone know the reg for that private 757 and whom it belongs to?
