You mean the LuxuryLiner?
And yeah, looks like the first 767 for AA wasn't delivered until around 1988.

I spotted some Long Beach Sewer Pipes which did not come into AMR's possession until about 82 maybe 83 in the video as well.
Still good clip of some old times.
What I was really looking for was the 27's using reverse thrust to back away from the terminal.
That was pretty prevalent back in the early days of AA at DFW and the 27.

The overdubbed sound is fake but very accurate. Excellent job separating JT3D sounds from JT8D and CF6 sound. Quite accurate to what it would have sounded like. The JT3 was such a screamer. The ramp and terminal would have been so loud back then.

Looks like that video includes footage up to the early 90’s at a minimum with the MD-11, black-nosed DL 727, and MD-80’s. Most of the MD-80 footage appears to be from the very late 80’s and 90’s given the gray-painted tails and screwdriver/beaver tail ones.
Flew through DFW quite a bit as a young kid from MSY to points west—was quite a treat to go from looking at New Orleans’ 727s and 737s to DC-10s and L1011s. Still look forward to transiting through it even if it doesn’t have the variety of airlines and aircraft I regularly see now that I live in the Bay Area.
