    It's....happening. The first real aircraft change (sorta) in 30 years!

    Always wondered whether they would do this upgrade. Sounds very cool. Curious to know what adjustments the pilots will need to make to adapt their routines to the newer and larger aircraft.

    The F4 is still my favorite : )
    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!

    I'm surprised they didn't switch to drones after the sequestration
