I had a little extra time this morning and thought Id to a little tribute to the airlines that I miss. Some of these pics bring back some great memories.

Ozark, the airline I flew on for the first time as a little guy, ALONE.

Eastern- They used to hub at my home airport (MCI) and I remember the day my dad and I went to the airport for the 10am westbound rush. We got their a little late to find all 10 of the Eastern 727s lined up to depart on 19. It was truly awesome!

SAVING THE BEST FOR LAST!

Braniff - These were the days I discovered that I could nag my parents to take me to the airport. Thanks for putting up with me and my nagging. Isn't it great when your parents realize that they have a kid that is really excited about something so awesome.

And what do my parents get for all that nagging. The pleasure that knowing their son is now an very happy air traffic controller.

I hope you have enjoyed my little photo tribute. Thanks to all the great guys and gals that took these awesome pictures.

Nice Job Atc Boy. I would just add Pan American World Airways. At one time, the chosen instrument of the US aviation in the world.

What a fantastic collection of photos. Nice job. I might have actually been on one of the Republic DC-9 pictured. I cannot remember though.

Reminds me of the good old days at O'Hare when you could see like a million different airlines.....even STL had some variety then.

I would like to add Western & Hughes Airwest. When I was a kid, my dad would take me to LAX & watch all the airplanes. Western, Pan Am & Hughes Airwest are three classics I truly miss these days. Regards.

I have always been a sucker for large writing down the side. And red is my favorite color on a plane.

I remember one night my dad and I were out at the airport and one of these came in. Too bad they didn't make it. What a great paint job.

Isn't it amazing??? Once upon a time there were so many players in this game...so many identities, so many logos, liveries, and hub cities. It's sad to think that the ones that stand out in our minds are the ones that met their fate long ago.

"Welcome aboard the United American Airlines of the Northwest Continental Delta Flight number...."

One of these days, they'll merge into one giant airline called...who knows.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
