"Ladies and gentlemen, we are now boarding. We apologize for the last-minute equipment change due to rebate-related cost constraints.

Please be advised that there will be no window seats on this flight (actually, no seats at all) and that we will probably not be able to make the pre-announced arrival time at the destination.

Thank you."

Actually that is Kenworth T600 attached to 53ft Wabash trailer. If the image were clearer I could give you the specs on the engine.

I had seen some other remarkable pictures from September 12, 2001 but I've never seen that one before.

Nope. It's a Great Dane.

With Bridgestone tires. And they don't have much tread left on them. But the spare is new.

Did you notice how some of the tire dust covers were missing? Shocking. At least the ones were present were the Mark 3 type, vastly superior to those pesky Mark 2s.

No. My monitor isn't that good. Not many US trucks have them, IIRC. Maybe Hunter the King can elaborate.

I'll go along with that but the tractor is a Kenworth T600.

Exactly, it's the all new Airbus A390 supertransporter that the US government ordered to replace the Galaxy. The A390 won over Boeings rival, the 797, and Boeing is appealing the decision, saying that millions of jobs would be lost over this decision. The senate is investigating the situation.

It also looks like its got about half tank of gas and the oil might be a little low.

I noticed that the front suspension is riding a little high - kinda implies that the coolant level is low.
