www.oag.com just reported this to me:
Flight DL 1616 - Delta Air Lines Aircraft 757
Depart Atlanta, Atlanta Hartsfield Intl Apt Dep. Time 11:30am Aug 02
Arrive New York, New York La Guardia Apt Arr. Time 01:36pm Aug 02
Travel Time 2 hours 6 mins Total Stops None
My 1:30 DL727 has now been replaced by a 757.
Two days ago, Mirrodie and I were on my infamous dock. And we watched, unknowingly that the 727 that we watched come in at 1:35PM was to be the last for us, and the end of an era.
I give you here, five frames from that final approach video you will ever see.
DL727, I bid you farewell. The sounds and dock-shaking that I experienced often from your Runway 13 departures will be forever in my memory.
I thank you for the opportunity.
(the video clip of this is 97 megs. Anyone who with a high speed connection and patience can contact me if you are interested in receiving it)
