I flew her on the 100th anniversary of the Kitty Hawk flight in 2003 from DAL to TUL - I was so honored!

The first 737-300 will be honored at the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas at the edge of DAL.

Its an HONOR to know she's being retired! Maybe now her lavs will finally be cleaned properly for the first time since she entered service! God they used to stink to high heaven. I worked her a lot years ago, glad to see the older -300's being phased out.

Well, THAT wasn't a very complimentary tribute to an elderly lady!

But all sentiment aside, by all means, park the dang thing.

How many cycles did this aircraft end up with? I'm sure a lot.

Would this be the first preserved B733?
