which is my second highest viewed photo? I just don't understand, especially since the second photo is showing action and the first photo is of a scrapped airliner.

Any opinions?

Thanks !

First of all, I think that second pic is a great pic. Standing so close to a rotating aircraft.
I guess that the first pic has more visitors because it is a 747SP. Just a wild guess.

We actually got on board that 747SP and it still had the Sony Video Projection units inside. If I had only more than my Swiss Army Knife with me, I would have taken one. We decided the last flight was from LHR to SFO in June 1995. We found some boarding passes still laying on the cabin floor, along with some issues of Sports Illustrated with a June 1995 date on them.

Jay,

I would say:

1) Possibly because there were so few made, 747SPs always tend to get high hit counts
2) Derelict airliners often get hit hit counts (take a look at the number of hits anything at Marana gets)

To be honest, I'd take a closer look at the SP, but not the 727. I guess it takes all sorts!

The 747SP is an almost extinct aircraft, unfortunately.  Sad
Thats why it has so many views, but thats just my guess. Smile

I don't know if it is still there or not, we haven't been back to Ardmore since we took those photos. Maybe we should head up there this Spring and take another look. It was neat going inside it. The galley in first class was alongside the starboard side of the aircraft, not built across the front like most airliners, so at the very front of the plane, there are no window seats, because the galley goes alongside the starboard side. It was weird, the layout of this aircraft. All the seats were still in it and everything. The cockpit had been torn up pretty good though.

The company doing the part out work at Ardmore is closing down and transferring the remainder of its operations to its other base in Miami (Opa Locka?). Last I heard, the only airplanes left there were a couple of A300s (one DHL, the other???) and a few other bits and bobs. I think that the UA 74L has been cut up. I'd suggest that there's no point in going there again in the near future.

When we were there, there was a Korean Air and DHL A-300, along with one all white A-300, with no idea who it belonged to. There was the 747SP, another UA 747-100 or 200 series, a few NW DC-9's and about 8 CO 737-200's.......had a good time up there, except for almost getting busted by the rent a cop, but that is another story and another time.......
