Oh wow - fond memories - I had that exact plane as a kid, with the airport and everything - it even had a jetway, and the baggage carousel went round when you turned a handle. All it was missing was the surly TSA bagsmashers in the basement and a hari-krishna in the ticket lobby.

Fisher-Price began construction in 1975, naming the model FP-72. The first customer was Braniff Airways. It was a business airline par excellence, offering frequent service in medium-size 727s. Adding the Fisher-Price aircraft meant businesspeople could easily get the connections they wanted. Braniff's chairman and CEO, Harding Lawrence, insisted that the Fisher-Price plane would bring easy connections to Sesame Street, and connect Dallas to all of Texas' barnyards and barbecues. Braniff put in an order for 26 aircraft with 38 on reserve.

Wow, what a time that was....I remember those FP-72's lined up in those wonderful colors! I sure do miss BN!

I can't really tell if this is a joke, especially that the 'toy' is 31 feet long!
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
