Mon Aug 12, 2002 9:14 pm

Seriously, imagine all your buddies from the air force or Aviation School get to fly DL's,AA's or whoever's new modern planes and you get to fly this??
Sure loks interesting, but it's the 21st century, right?!

I wonder if the modern planes you refer to will still be flying in 30 - 40 years time?

I used to work and fly on the old Vickers VC10s. The aircrew were always bringing their mates on test flights so they could have some hands on. All of them loved it and without fail would say what a great aircraft it was to fly. Modern aircraft may be easier to fly, but better? not always.

Hey, I'm not referring to the performance of the 727! I love ye olde three-holers and the 727 is THE greatest plane ever in every way you look at it.I was talking about the working place in this cockpit, surely all original parts from back then.
UPS or FXs 27s don't look like this.

I have been on that aircraft.

No passengers to listen to whining...

And NAC flies that thing into small gravel strips....

It is a hell of a lot more romantic then Dallas to Atlanta day in and out.

Besides NAC qualifies all of their pilots both on the 727 and their DC-6's
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
