I have not been able to pull up that web site nor any others that end in af.mil.
Has the Air Force shut them all down? I would like to be able to get some more information about the C-141 flight.
I noticed that when the Seahawks arrived at DTW for the Super Bowl the 757 had Seattle Seahawks titles. Does that aircraft always have the titles or where they put on for the Super Bowl?Jump to post

The runway at Wakeman Ohio is 3,800 x 55. In the late 1970's there was a cargo carrier based there called Ortner Airlines. They had several DC-7s and a DC-7C. My guess is they flew them out of there empty but even so the
DC-7C is a pretty big aircraft for that size runway.

Here is a quote from Robert Hopkins book on the <acronym title="Carpatian Air Transport (Hungary)">KC</acronym>-135.

Yes the <acronym title="Carpatian Air Transport (Hungary)">KC</acronym>-135As were pressurized. Low pressure bleed air from each engine was used for pressurization, air conditioning and other things such as pneumatic starting. The J75s did not have thrust reversers.

Great News! I didn't know there were that many episodes. Wonder how many volumes there will be and how long it will take to get them all out. Have ya heard anything about The High And The Mighty with John Wayne? It was supposed to be released this spring. We need all the good airplane movies we can ...Jump to post
Hope you got a chance to see the show yesterday. Took me two hours to get there from Dearborn as I didn't know parts of I-94 were closed. Seemed like every alternate route I tried had construction as well. It was well worth the wait as the Collings Foundation F-4 was fantistic! Can't say much for th...Jump to post
