I love the 757! I would very much hate it when Boeing quits making them. Supersonic is okay, but normal planes are better. I fear that the Jet Age is coming to a close, and the Space Age is in it's infancy. I hope that I am not around when the Jet Age ends, that's my future down the tube if it does. :(
You´re not alone. Most of people just love airplanes the way they are now. I live in a area that aircrafts are passing by from time to time, like every hour. And I love to watch them. I live in a apartment with a penthouse, and for example, if I am studying downstairs and I hear a plane passing by, I rush upstairs to see it. My friends get amazed when I look at the aircraft, and I say the carrier and the aircraft model. Since I was a little girl that I love aircrafts. During my childhood I always wanted to go to the airport just to see the aircrafts. My dad also likes it, and I think it comes with the genes :))))
Unfortunately in 20 years or less, we´ll have to deal with it. Like, our grandparents lived trough the age of jet-props and early boeings, and maybe they didn´t like the jets we have now. I´m sure our kids will love the supersonics.
I hope Boeing does not start to produce these ugly supersonic jets. Is there anything better than fly those 757s and other aircrafts without get happy? This year I spent my vacations in Sao Paulo and one of the best moments of the trip was actually getting on the plane! My friends think I am going nuts, but I like it!
Before I was into aircrafts (now I am obsessed), I easily got mad of the plane spotters, I complained that they doesn´t have anything better to do. But now I see what they mean when they sit down and watch the planes coming and going. Even my mom laughed at me when I told her that now, when I have my own car, I would go to the airport, grab my Nikon and take some pics :)))
