I think i was 13 i walked out my of the garage and my dad looked up and pointed at a Delta 727 that was jetising (spelling?) fuel out of the wintips. He departed 31L at DFW
and headed strait west. The entire time he was dropping fuel. He went directly over my house and then proceded to head over to alliance, i remember thinking he was going to make an emergancy landing there but he didnt. About 10 minutes later the rotation of the traffic went from TO
on 31L to landings on 13R. So therefor i saw the 727 on a long final for 13R.
BTW: when he went over my house he was about 1500 AGL.
I think i was around 14 or 15. Was running on the track at our middle school and not really paying to much attention to the sky like i always do but it was hard to miss a DC-10. Being since its one of my favorite aircraft to watch i stopped running at just watched the AA
DC-10 on a far out downwind into Alliance airport (AFW
-Fort Worth,Tx) IF
my memory is right i think the tail # was A164AA. YES he was that low, i felt the rumbling of the engines going through my chest. I dont think he had pax on board, he was probably just making a test flight or pilot training of some sort.
