1991 Fort Lauderdale Footage

Fri Oct 16, 2015 3:31 pm

I came across this on youtube and it really left me with a feeling of nostalgia, especially for the 727's as this was the first type of plane I ever flew on. In my opionion, one of the most aesthetically pleasing aircraft to grace the skies.

That makes me nostalgic. My mom used to live in Ft. Lauderdale, and I spent lots of time in that viewing area in the early 90's.

Fantastic find. This is the angle I remember from my early childhood in the mid-late 80s before we moved to the western suburbs in 1990, after which I had all but forgotten about "plane spotting" for about a decade until I decided to apply for a college aviation degree program during the later years of high school. By that time, the present-day aircraft viewing area south of the runway was then open, and stopping along the west edge of the runway on the shoulder of Perimeter Road (as seen in the video) had since been prohibited.
