Global Peace's 747SP generated tons of interest when it landed
This was also a big deal here at MDT. The plane was here for some time being painted, I believe. I remember passing by the airport on the Pa Turnpike, and seeing this big white tail sticking up over the buildings. That was surely a cool sight to see.
Also, last January, when Penn State was in the Orange Bowl, we had a parade of charters in and out all day. Besides the WN
charters, there was a couple of 727's from Pan Am (Boston Maine). But the most exciting had to be the UA
767! So excitiing in fact, that UA
had to send a mx guy from Dulles, with a tow bar, because MDT didn't have one to push back a 767!
Of course, there was also Air Force One, a couple of times, during the election. Awesome to see the E4 doing touch and go!

My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.
