MLB is no dump as they have made improvements to it in the past few years. The city and surrounding areas are safer than the Sanford area in my opinion.

Having rode on all the 757's that were in the fleet, you could tell if it was an ex EA one. They were louder than the newer 757's US had.. At least in my opinion. I racked up a lot miles flying on them between MCO-PIT and PHL as a kid.
