I was there. It was nice to meet so many Airliners.net members at MCO. Now I can put a face to the names. Since the flight was so late getting in to MCO, I had to rebook my connection to IAD. The agent put me on a non-stop Delta Express flight from MCO to IAD. I protested loudly. I said I must go on flight 1949, so he put me back on that, and I had three hours before my new flight to IAD. During that layover, DL_Mech was very nice and gave me a tour of the hangers. We went aboard several Delta aircraft, and I was permitted to open a window exit and the main cabin door on a 727. It was much easier than I thought it would be. He even photographed me under the nose wheel of L-1011 aircraft 728. Thanks Louis. It was really appreciated. I also was taken on the Flying Hospital, an L-1011 that used to belong to PSA, and I even got to go into the downstairs lounge.
While on aircraft 728, I was permitted to go down to the below deck galley in the elevator. What an experience! Cody and A330300 were with me for this, and they both seem to be very fine people. I enjoyed talking to them.
