A few Sunday mornings ago, there was a Worlds Airway MD11F and a C-17 departing for transatlatic flights. Both took off at almost if not full power, both was Pratt powered and both smoky. You could hear both for some as they were turning right, to cross the Atlantic Ocean. I am more of a Boeing and Airbus fan, but to see two big Mad Dogs, kinda me think, these two jet was built in the Los Angele area. It kinda cool to have large a/c built in your neck of the woods.
