Here is a video I took of Reno's 1st MD-90 (N901RA) Orange County Flyer - leaving SJC on a early AM departure from runway 30L. This was the same jet used on the Inaugural service from SJC-SNA, and this jet was also used at the Open House at ACM Aviation, which was open to the public the day before the Inaugural flight, I'm guessing way back in Apr 4th?, 1996....The MD90 sure was a smooth sounding jet, compared to the other noisey Mad Dog's. Check out my other video's linked on the MD-90 video page...thanks

Excellent memories there! I miss QQ! What an awesome little airline. Wish they were still flying, but maybe one day we will see something similar. Nice videos, and awesome takeoff. Looks like both QQ and AS made a nice show for you. The takeoff banks were impressive on those birds!

Thanks for the comments--
...I have many SJC AA777 videos, including the Inaugural for both NRT and TPE(with onboard/Ramp-water cannon salute- video of both flights before boarding & lobby festivities). I definetly will get more between now and the Oct 28th deadline...I've filmed most angles, and when they extended 30R , I don't go up to SJC as much because they depart on 30R...just isn't the same. They've also blocked my fav angle with the Intl terminal...so I don't chase the jets at SJC too much anymore, unless there is something good...as there are far too many Kmart airlines sticking their orange noses in the way..........
A330-300: good win,,,,,,I never get lucky on those drawings..

Quoting BR715-A1-30 (Reply 15): That is a haunting video of N963AS. Just the fact that I am watching a plane that's life so tragically ended and took so many innocent souls with it. All because one person was not listened to.
I have a video that has the AF Concord F-BTSC at JFK, was very sad when I realized it
