I just wanted to feel how are we still, regarding those lovely, old, noisy piston airliners, I personally miss a lot those planes and I remember during late 70's and early 80's to see quire often them flying to Lisbon. Now I think it's geeting quite rare to see them unless you're in Alaska or Latin America. But my question is, apart from those ones that are flying museums when did you last seen one of those airliners. I start saying that I saw in August 1998 in Fresno a C-54 ( looked like a water-bomber ) and in 1999 a CV440 at Evora Airport - CS-TML that is now in Air Atlantic. Please let me have your information too!!!
regards and put your mind working!!!

There's a Beech 18 that flies on behalf of ABX, that comes into HII (Havasu Municipal) twice a day. Not exactly a "big" piston prop-job, but it's still a pretty cool sight watching that puppy taking flight. Regards.
