True story, but I miss NWA. They would be departing in and out of McCarran, until they dissapeared somewhere in 2007

It's nice to see that each person have their favorite aircraft. A huge passion!
In my opinion the years 80/90 were the best (a huge amount of vintage aircraft in operations - especially of the McDonnell Douglas :) ), days gold, unmatched

Does the future the aircrafts are going didn't even to need pilots? :shock:

The F-14 Tomcat (and variations) was the fighter jet when I was growing up. I never saw one in flight. I guess I never will.
