They were just barely ahead of my time as a pilot but I loved them. The Shuttle birds were my favorite plane on earth. In my home office I have a model 727 from Shuttle that I bought on Ebay. I dream of those days returning. What a dream it would be to fly LGA-DCA-BOS-LGA all day long in a 727.
There is plenty of room for Gods animals, right next to the mashed potatoes!
