RE: NWA Retires Another Dc-10-40

Truly a shame to see the DC-10s go  <img src="/discussions/graphics/crying.gif" ALT="Crying">. How many are left?? And Wasn't the A330 delivery for NW delayed a bit?? I didnt know they were getting 753s, you learn something every day! Is anybody other than ATA and NW getting the 753 in the US??...

RE: ATA 757-300 Trip Report

Nice trip report Chepos!! I've been to SJU several times over the years, and my family and I stayed in a condo overlooking runway 8- its a heck of an airport!!! San Juan's like a 2nd home. Iberia is taking 747-200s in there now? It used to be DC-10s. Any new airlines? I've wanted to fly ATA, they se...

RE: All Of This 717 Talk Has Got Me Thinking WN.

Is Southwest ever planning to break its 25+ year 737 "alliance"? The 717 would seem like a perfect replacement for its 737-200s when they are retired (it's unlikely though.)

Or maybe the A319/A320 combo...?? Frontier was all 737 until they ordered some A319s (I think it was.)

RE: Concorde Cleared To FLy!

FINALLY!! The almighty Concorde is returning!!!!!! That is some of the best news I've heard in a while. To KonaB777- If you do go on the spectator flight, try to wear cool clothing. At sub sonic speed, the Air Conditioning systems do not work. Believe me, I know first hand. I was on a spectator flig...

RE: Top 2 Aircraft For A Start-up Airline.

For a cargo airline- L-1011s or DC-10s (there are TONS in the desert), and the 747-100 or 200. All are reliable, and would be good temporarily until you could afford newer jets. 707, DC-8, DC-9, 727 would be good too. Convair 880/990s maybe? Regional Airlines- Canadair Regional Jet or EMB-145, and a...

RE: Favorite Airline Color Scheme (us Based

My thoughts: Any of the Delta paint schemes (some planes look good in 1 paint scheme, some in the others) The new USAirways is cool, I like both of theirs. TWA's is cool, the old one was ok. I think American should keep some planes in the current TWA paint scheme when TWA is gone, for memories. Amer...

RE: AA Banning Their Planes From Flightsim

There is also an American DC-10 on Airport 2000 Vol. 1
I've got it, and it's pretty cool. Airport scenery add-ons and other planes are on this and Vol. 2

Vol. 1 for FS98
Vol. 2 for FS98/FS2000

RE: CMH-PIT-SAN/SAN-PHL-CMH On USAirways *Long*

You're right about the 757. I love that plane's takeoff and the performance of it. (The only plane I like better is the L-1011 though, as others may have noticed.) I was on an A320 CMH-CLT in July, and I liked it. (We then connected in CLT to a 757 to MCO.  <img src="/discussions/graphics/wink....

RE: DL L-1011 Memories

I know ATA still has theirs until 2003, that's my only shot to fly on them, YES Portugal picked up some ex- Delta L1011-500s, Flying Hospital has a couple, including Delta's last TriStar, Orbital Sciences, BWIA, Arrow Air, Fine Air, Air Atlanta (for a little while) and the RAF still has them as tank...

RE: Your Warmest Memory Of Flying

This is for NWAirlines, just for some FYI-

They did do a washdown for a TWA 727-200 in 1996 for a retiring pilot @ CMH, so why they didn't do it for your flight, I have no idea. I live about 50 miles from CMH, and saw it in the newspaper

DL L-1011 Memories

I'd like to hear about some memories that you may have about Delta's recently retired  <img src="/discussions/graphics/frown.gif" ALT="Sad"> L-1011 TriStars. I have many great memories. The first of 8 flights I would take on the L10 was from SFO-ATL in Sept. 1995. I don't remember it well, but ...

RE: Your Warmest Memory Of Flying

My warmest memory of flying was in July of 1999. I had flown many times in the past, but one plane had eluded my experience- the Boeing 747. We had tried to get on a NW 747 between MSP-SEA in 1995, but took AmTrak instead. This flight would also be my first to Europe, with my parents, of course. I ...
