We know AeroMexico flew a Britannia Mexico to New York for a year or two, but I was surprised to see in the Feb 1959 OAG that Mexicana claimed to fly a "Brit. 302". A weekly flight -- left Mexico City Saturday afternoon, flew to ACA-LAX-ACA and back to Mexico City on Sunday morning. No oth...Jump to post
AW&ST for 7 Oct 1963 has a table showing passengers enplaned by US-flag airlines at Latin American cities during the year 1962. It says Pan Am enplaned 84135 pax at "Panama City"; no other US airlines there. It says Braniff enplaned 12623 and Panagra enplaned 41128 at "Balboa&quo...Jump to post

The June 1991 NW timetable says SYD would start 1 July. Timetable for 1 Aug just shows flight 76 SYD to HNL 4/week -- nothing beyond. TT for 5 Sept shows 4/week SYD- HNL-LAX. 15 Dec 1991 shows flight 86 weekly to HNL-LAX, 74 3/week to LAX, 70 3/week to OSA-JFK. Ditto thru July 1992; in Aug 1992 add ...Jump to post

The usual Bay Tour is climb and maintain 3000, remain over the water, depart Golden Gate Bridge heading 230 or some such. Never seen one go east over the Golden Gate until today.Jump to post
The UK carrier on the route was originally British Eagle ... "The route" between Miami and London via Bermuda, or some such. It seems BOAC and National were both approved to fly MIA-LHR nonstop in Summer 1969, and both were to start it in January 1970; maybe BOAC did, but National was lat...Jump to post
This change now allows aircraft to be separated by 1 mile between the leading aircraft for Runway 28L and the trailing aircraft for Runway 28R all the way down to CAT 1 minimums. Or the other way around? Can the lead aircraft go to 28R? This is not the offset localizer from a few years ago? That's ...Jump to post
further than its stated distance? You're assuming "its stated distance" is some sort of official range. It isn't. Any airliner has a full-payload range, assuming still air and standard reserve fuel. Maybe that's what the "stated distance" is in this case. If it's carrying less p...Jump to post
Boeing 777-200 (not ER or LR, just the plain -200) has a listed range (in Wikipedia) of 9700 km. Any time someone says such-and-such aircraft has a "listed range" of so-and-so kilometers, pay no attention. They're not telling you anything helpful. But if they say it has a range of so-and-...Jump to post

Eastern 809 flew PHL-BAL-BDA -- left PHL around 1030. The 10/77 OAG says L10; the 3/78 says it would change from 72S to L10 on 20 March. June 1978 timetable shows L10.Jump to post

In 1975-77 the ITO-ORD nonstop was Friday only, then in 1978 UA said it would be daily eff 9 June -- still eastward only. No nonstop in the 10/78 timetable.Jump to post

If you can't get the info elsewhere, you can always try When you're listening to a low-altitude plane, keep listening as it climbs, to hear the frequencies it changes to.

That’s called the TRUKN departure. The TRUKN departure isn't intended to go over San Bruno Mountain. It says right turn to TRUKN (i.e. Oakland airport) on reaching 520 ft altitude -- guess for a heavy that would be around the west end of the runway.

Yeah, looking at the east end (where the high-numbered gates would be) there could be a short gap between the "satellite" and the terminal -- but what for? Too small for planes to taxi over it, and would they build an undergound walkway just to make things easier for baggage wagons? Can't ...Jump to post
