Count me in, too, LGA777!
My first flight to TPA
was into good old "E" in the late summer of 1979. On a National DC-10, too!
I remember walking to catch a flight in the early 90's, and there was a Russian aircraft(possibly an IL
-62)parked in one of the gates. The bird wasn't Aeroflot, and I'd never heard of the airline. No one was around the gate, and I thought about wandering up the jet way to peek in, but a couple of airport cops gave me the evil eye when I headed towards the gate. Wish I'd had a camera.
If you don't stand for SOMETHING, you'll fall for ANYTHING.
