Somewhere in addition to FLL would be helpful here. I enjoy flying SWA, but that would take 2 plane changes for me to get there. I'm sure others would be in a similar situation. Why not BWI or MDW also? Ditto here. 2 plane changes and taking most of a day to get there and back would be a real negat...Jump to post
Many of these Pan Am timetables have complete images of the schedules. PAA used symbols below the flight numbers for a/c types, with a key to those symbols noted below.
Have fun exploring:
Southwest doesn't surprise me, just seemed to be very friendly and helpful, clean aircraft on-time and reasonable legroom. As a tourist free bags are a plus as it's difficult to travel 9000miles without bags. Their fares are also good but I would choose them over AA/UA/DL even if the fare was more....Jump to post
So doomsday scenario for Yooper aviation... EAS $$$ disappear. Would any current EAS Michigan airports retain commercial service? Is PLN enough of a draw, for example, that an airline would still operate it and charge more for tickets? Air Choice One operates Ironwood, MI (IWD) to ORD and MSP with ...Jump to post

While refueling the C-5 behind the KC-10, the center engine would push the C-5 to a bit of skid off go one side. If you tried to stay perfectly centered on the lights you would pushed either way. Usually, you just state to one side and accepted the yaw. GF Conversely, I've heard the C-5 generates a...Jump to post
I would be interested to know how rest was handled in the Gen. 1 narrow body planes like the VC-10, 707-320 or the mighty DC-8 which I beleive had the longest lets of them all back in the day. Also, per post 36, is there really a "gum Island" or should we presume Guam in the Pacific? Actu...Jump to post
There were 6 Western Global MD-11's parked at RSW this past Sunday 16-April. Airfleets.net shows them operating 11 MD-11's and 2 744F for a total of 13 aircraft. It really makes me wonder how well they're doing as a company when almost half of their fleet is parked at their base in RSW.Jump to post

I was able to see her depart, taking up most of rwy 18C as we're used to with Kalitta. Leaving a nice smoke trail too. I'm very sad to see them go, I have fond memories of the K4 742 around AMS.

Not as far as the flights from PIT and MKE to CUN,
I'm still amazed that they used RWY 20 for takeoff. I would have never expected that. They used RWY 11 on Wednesday due to lighter south winds. The 787 is a beast! From the video rotation on RWY 11 appears to have occurred at, or just prior to reaching RWY 11/29. Well less than 6000' for sure-- imp...Jump to post
Mach 0.995 in flight testing with FTV1 after only 200 hours of flight. Impressive. Very impressive if you can get above every one else out there.

Could B6 land at APF with their 320s or 190s? The runway is so short. I flew ASA CRJ-100 back in the day. APF's longest runway is 6600 ft. More restrictive is the fact that APF has aircraft weight restrictions of 75,000 lbs maximum gross weight. B6 would never be able to fly there unless they were ...Jump to post

As for mainline, I experienced a few DC9 powerbacks on NW at MSP in the past. Did they ever do it with the 727? I also had some NW DC9 and AA F100 flights out of RST in 2002-2004 period, and I think they may have used turnout gates there at the time... but I don't think RST gets any mainline servic...Jump to post

What isn't known yet is where the familiarization flights will fly to. That won't be known for at least a couple months. I suspect there will also be ground training in DTW and ATL as well. Off topic, but somewhat related. Do airlines still train pilots using actual air-frames, or is that strictly ...Jump to post
PA 54 DTW-LHR and PA 55 LHR-DTW were non-stop operated by a 707 at that time, no stop in BOS. The timetable also shows NW operated the DTW-MSP portion.
This may have been posted elsewhere, but here's a WN video of the 7M8 they released last week:

Are the first DL A350's based in DTW?

It's a very steep drop off just another few hundred feet. They did a huge amount of improvement to that area a couple years ago, it could have been a lot worse.
