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:

It must be said. Image
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

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.
