Re: Airports that can be accessed on foot vs airports that can only be accessed by car / train

As far as I can tell, it's a split decision for MSP. Terminal 1 does not seem to be accessible at all by foot (not even using Northwest Drive to avoid the freeway), but you can walk to Terminal 2. But you can take the public train between the terminals for free (even though it charges a fare elsewhe...

Although, bear in mind if we are still focusing specifically on 1967, the DC-8-63 is irrelevant because it did not have EIS until 1968. The -61 came out one year earlier, so for 1967 the -61 is in the picture but the -63 is not.

It seems the DC-8-61 had a maximum capacity (in high-density, all-economy configuration) of 259.

By comparison, the 707-320C had an exit limit of 219, and the Tupolev ...
