Ok I had to long range trip experiences they were military charter on commercial aircraft first one was July 1977 I flew on a Flying Tigers aircraft from Taipei, Taiwan when my dad retired from the Navy back then. After retirement we boarded the Flying Tigers aircraft from Taipei-Tokyo area I resume for our 1st fuel stop then ANC, and down to Travis AFB.
My question for this would be is this a 741 or 742? And if not what kind would the jet have been? Some of you old timers may know this and maybe not. I remember the plane having commercial seats. I'm assuming it wasn't a cargo jet but I could be wrong.
The second question is in September 1994 I was flown on a MAC charter from PHL-SNN then stopped for fuel Now I specifically know it was ATA that was military chartered (originated in NAS Norfolk), then SNN-NAS Sigonella Italy. Then Final leg was NAS Sigonella-Manama, Bahrain. ,
My second question is would it have been a L-1011 or another type maybe a 757 (did they have or use 757s on that charter flight) or maybe they used another type.
If anyone knows that would be appreciated.
