Out of curiosity, is there a way to find out what ship number (B767-300ER) was flying on 13th October 1997 from VIE to ATL? It was my 1st TATL flight. Would there be a chance that this particular 767 is still in the DL fleet? IIRC, the routing of that aircraft was ATL-VIE-BUD-VIE-ATL if that helps....Jump to post

I’ve always been curious as to why the original 747 “Big Orange” never received the “Ultra” livery. Does anyone have any insight why Big Orange didn’t get it. Big Orange was supposedly one of the highest utilization 747s in the world flying DFW-HNL-DFW. Probably could not afford to take it out of s...Jump to post

I would have shut the cabin door and moved the jetway over instead of crawling off a belt loader. But can the Captain's window be opened from outside.

My wife used to take a commuter flight which was either CRJ200 or SF340. She used to ask me to make sure she was on the CRJ200. It always depends on what the comparison is. The CRJ200 has a real lavatory. The EMB120/SF340 had lavatories, but were tiny and awkward. The low windows on the CRJ200 are ...Jump to post
those old school Hough T500s my favorite albeit extinct GSE equipment! The Hough Paymover T500 is a sexy beast. Every early 747 operator had them. After 50 years of service they are not really needed anymore. A few years ago I saw an original Delta T500 sitting in the driveway of a house. That wasn...Jump to post

That looks really falloffable.
I still don't get it or missed it between the lines, but why weren't they able to hard-block the seats like LH does for almost a decade now in their 321s (which physically have 205 seats, but blocked down to 200) with the table. see here: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Lufthansa_Business_Class...Jump to post

Delta did this as well on the 800’s a few years ago to get them to 150. I don't recall that. I'm looking at DL-origin seat maps from 2005 and 2008 that actually had 150 physical seats. It was before 2005. They removed four 3 seat groups from the left aft portion of the Y cabin (12 seats) and added ...Jump to post
Just a practical question: In the case of tri-jets, in particular the DC-10 and MD-11, the engine nr. 2 is mounted some 10m above ground. How is the oil level control and top-up performed? Logically, a cherry picker or similar device would be required to access the engine. Or is there a possibility...Jump to post

JT8s always did leave a puddle of oil at the bottom of the airstairs on the 727. In my experience, PW4000s use very little oil compared to a GE CF6. We once had a European outstation “service” the oils on a CF6. They wrote 0 pints of oil uplifted in the logbook. It became obvious that they did not s...Jump to post

This is from a former member of this forum who worked on the production line during its heyday: Lockheed painted the fuselage of the L-1011 prior to wing and aft body mate and final production. They had a special paint hanger that just fit the fuselage, sans wings and vertical stabilizer. The area a...Jump to post

Something of interest along the lines of this topic.
