Here's a link to a photo of a Mexicana Comet taxing to the active runway at San Antonio - heading for Mexico City via Monterrey or Guadalajara.
Back when I was a kid, BN had a daily morning flight from MAF to CRP on a BAC-111 to serve the oil and gas traffic. I couldn't find Midland on a Braniff route map until the late 70s and then it was only served from DFW. Surely Corpus a had a same-plane service to MAF at some point, but can't think ...Jump to post
I remember trying to convince my mom to let me use my summer lawn moving money to fly the Braniff Concorde to Washington, D.C. (starting/ending in San Antonio). I was laughed out of the room. Just as aside, I was curious what the $2,222 would be worth today were it invested in the stock market at th...Jump to post
And to be honest outside the aviation nerds the reaction is overly positive: https://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/archives/new_logo_identity_and_livery_for_lufthansa_done_in_house.php FWIW, Under Consideration is hardly the musings of design professionals...its graphic design nerds instead o...Jump to post
El Paso - Denver is on the route map. Was that previously announced?Jump to post

I have to think there are a fair amount of people in San Antonio that drive to Austin to use the airport I recall the City of San Antonio estimating that 'several hundred thousand' people per year are using Austin's airport. It would make sense. Air fares on many routes ex- Austin are lower and wel...Jump to post

Yes, that's true.
West Houston Airport is half under water on Goggle Earth.
You must be looking at the Goggle Earth application? The images for many parts (not all) of the Houston area are from August 30, 2017. Widespread flooding is evident in far west/southwest Houston due to reservoir releases. Other areas that did flood drained fairly quickly or do not have the latest i...Jump to post
Plus that's not the Houston skyline in the background Hey there Homer! Long time. Another Houstonian checking in. We'll be back. Although, I would imagine in the future, people will reconsider job offers that might take them to Houston. And, probably more than handful will jump at the chance to put...Jump to post
Why is Rep. Cuellar insisting on SAT-DCA nonstop service... Its primarily about access to the Pentagon. San Antonio - for those that might not be aware - is a huge military town. Joint Base San Antonio is composed of two AFBs and US Army Fort Sam Houston. Tens of thousands military and civilian per...Jump to post
Wow, visiting Jersey at about the mid-point of the "Bergerac" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0081831/?ref_=nv_sr_1) police detective drama that was filmed on the island. Some of these same aircraft appeared in scenes filmed at the airport, although the program featured the BA 1-11s over B-Ca...Jump to post
If you Google Trans International Airlines, there's a pretty good 'blog' of trip reports, flight logs and pictures from the 1970s by a flight attendant. Can't get to the link just now on my end.Jump to post
Remember the last time Houston hosted the Super Bowl in 2004 (also NE Patriots) Hobby was buzzing the Sunday morning of the game. Two or three chartered 727s landed in succession. A few British spotters were logging tail numbers as well.Jump to post
Not sure why 2x weekly to AUS. Seems a little strange for a business destination. According to faremeasure.com, 457 people travel to AUS from IND daily. That route needs daily at minimum. Maybe 2x daily M-F. A morning and evening flight. I just looked at faremeasure.com and it shows (when it works)...Jump to post

I've always wonder about Aerovias Guest flights to San Antonio. I've never seen them in a timetable.

Drink, feck, arse, girls.
Still one of my favorite all time shows. We had a few Irish priests assigned to the Catholic parishes (So. Texas) my family attended during the 70s and 80s.
Saw my first episode in 2000 on board a United 777 flying from Dulles to O'Hare.

This video has some great footage of just about everything at Tan Son Nhut circa 1968.
The only real comparison between <acronym title="Oklahoma City - Will Rogers World (OKC / KOKC), USA - Oklahoma">OKC</acronym> and San Antonio is number of NBA championships of one versus the other...which is currently 5 times zero. <img src="http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/graphi...Jump to post
