I know most of the bands now charter jets, but wouldn't it be nice to see some of the interiors of these jets. I have a Genesis DVD of their concert at Wembley Stadium and they show them aboard a Viscount (I believe) and I'd just love to get a inside look at some of these planes.
Years ago, (1979) when I worked as a ticket agent for Air Midwest in LBB, Ray Charles came to town and he had his own Viscount. We got to look on board and it sure was nice.
And sorry for the plug but I think this beauty is still flying as I got an invite just last year from the pilot for a tour. It's at Camirillo California airport near Oxnard. It a memory of my own time and my namesake

Here's what it looks like now. This is 4 months ago. She looks in somewhat sad shape. She isn't airworthy at the moment. Her engines are heavily corroded form salt exposure, she a cracked left-main strut also.

Oh man, that's sad to hear. I can only imagine how hard it is to raise funds for her especially since it's not one of the more "glamorous" propliners. I sure loved those big ole seats. Still nothing as comfortable today in coach. I broke my leg falling out of those rear stairs in my first week of employment.
I see we both are with NW. Will retire to your area in 2 years then maybe I can get down to Cal and visit N636X.
