Something I have never seen before, this AA MD82 pushed back from the gate under its own power, or more specifically, as you can see, with reverse thrusters delpoyed. It was loud! Apparently, this was normal practice in the busier days of the hub and spoke operation, and is still sometimes allowed!!!
