Re: Your last trip and the next trip you cancelled

Last trip was SLC-SFO-LAX and then returning LAX-SLC back in February to visit a friend in LA. The next one would've been SLC-DTW-BTV in March with DL, returning via ORD with United.

Re: Early 70's Northwest Colors Question?

Just to add a note about the wings, on most (if not all) early 727s, the wings were basically bare aluminum all over with coroguard in the center section (the greyish-metallic stuff). Elevators and the leading edge of the horizontal stabilizer were also aluminum, while the rest was usually Boeing gr...

The longest one for me was American Eagle/SkyWest 3003 from SLC to ORD on June 12, which was about 3 1/2 hours late. No reason was ever given, but I suspect it had to do with the GPS outage that occurred that week which was wreaking havoc on certain FMS models (including the one found in most CRJs)....

There's also EYW, of course.
