RE: 10 Plane Crashes That Changed Aviation

Sorry Folks; can't help but to mention Pacific Air Lines Flight 773. Passenger shot the Pilots resulting in the crash of Fairchild F-27 N2770R on May 7, 1964. Not terrorist motivated, but a definite glimpse of 9-11 with passengers accessing the cockpit area of an Airliner. <table BORDER=0 width=102 ...

RE: Boarding Through The Back Of The Plane

I am willing to bet M404 has gone up and down the rear steps on the Martin 4-0-4 aircraft a few times. I have too, that was 'boarding throught the back of the plane'. Also had opportunity to do same on 727 and DC-9 aircraft. God I'm old!
