My grandfather used to talk about how the family would all go to the airport to watch the DC-3 comming in.

My father still talks about his first 707 flight.

What memories will we share with the next generation? Will it be a trip in the Concorde? Perhaps a first "Edge of space" flight? Will it be a rount the world journey?

When is NW going to get rid of those old 7e7s?
Airbus and Boeing use to be two separate companies.
Were AF planes that dirty 50 years ago?

If not now, then when?
