What Will Your Grandchildren Want To Hear About?

Fri Aug 20, 2004 8:44 am

My grandfather used to talk about how the family would all go to the airport to watch the DC-3 comming in.

My father still talks about his first 707 flight.

What memories will we share with the next generation? Will it be a trip in the Concorde? Perhaps a first "Edge of space" flight? Will it be a rount the world journey?

The days of limited PTVs (but they might be able to experience that  Big grin) and development of the 7E7 and 380.

Probably how we used to get free pretzels and drinks on domestic flights.

When is NW going to get rid of those old 7e7s?
Airbus and Boeing use to be two separate companies.
Were AF planes that dirty 50 years ago?
If not now, then when?
