X-American 747 Shuttle Hauler

I'm interested in any information any one has on the previously American owned 747-100 that now hauls NASA space-shuttles around.

Douglas Wasn't Worth Crap Anyway

Please excuse my language (speaking of which...), but Douglas was pretty crappy. DC-10s used to fall out of the sky like meteors, MD-11s are none to rare to the crash scenario, and MD-80s haven't proven too strong either. I noticed, on this vary site, that if you go into the Crashes/Incidenta sectio...

On the other hand, I have a p...

RE: 757 Or A319? A319

I have long been a fan of Boeing, however, it is factual that Boeing's aircraft are narrower. The A319 is smaller, also, and more automated. Though I've only toured them and nevre flown on an A319 (though, like you, many 757s), they seem quite comfortable. The A319 is advanced, wider than a 757, an...
