Re: FedEx and UPS 757s

I recall during taxi, I would need to use the breaks with Pratt’s, and power with the rolls. Rolls started quicker, but Pratt’s had more power. Loved flying both of them. One of my favorite machines I’ve flown by far

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

If you want to know how a local economy is doing, you just have to look at the local airpot. MHT is dying because the local economy around it is dying. Most of the business in NH is tied into Boston, with perks out of BOS. Most of the people buying houses in southern NH are boarder hoppers from MA, ...

When it eventually happens, I suspect something to the extent of KLM, where the striping was changed. Maybe, MAYBE font, but I highly doubt anything more than a few small tweaks.

1.3 tons of cocaine carried on AF CCS-CDG flight

So would those bags have been on the cargo manifest as baggage, or would someone try to sneak them on without anyone else knowing? Curious as it could have made the aircraft over weight, potentially making a dangerous situation in the event something went wrong.
