That strikes me as odd as one would think that there should be at least some titles on it. I personally don't see why there are no AC titles on those planes cause to the average passenger they do operate an AC flight I agree. People may already be nervous about flying in a small 'puddle jumper' , t...Jump to post

And the ones that come to ROC do not have any titles on them....
IFL group still uses theirs, but the schedule is fairly irregular. Although it does hit LRD and PTK at least once a week usually. It's also a frequent visitor to YHM. Are the Cargojet 727's up in Canada still regularly flying? Yes,on the EWR-BDA run https://flightaware.com/live/flight/CJT245/histor...Jump to post
Looks like it's being retired to Sebring.FL. The end of an era
I wonder when ROC had DC-10 service in the early 70's,if we had a jetway ? Before my airport spotting days...Jump to post
I never rode on a Braniff one, but the three holer has always been my favorite. I had the opportunity to fly on the ones that graced the skies for United, Piedmont, Eastern, Delta, Northwest, ATA, and TWA. Nothing like using up approx. 12K feet of runway in LAS on a hot August afternoon to go to DE...Jump to post

Still nice to see. I remember reading,back when they were not allowed to fly over the USA,they had to fly up and down the St Lawrence to YUL. p I was not aware of any prohibition against Cubana flying over the U.S., regardless of equipment type. US airlines have always been included to overfly Cuba...Jump to post
Is this normal ? If not,I hope someone gets some pictures.

Where did you see that? They E135/E145 routes have been operating as scheduled and BUF-ALB is 2x/day everyplace I've checked.
When was the last decade a DC-8 was in Lihue? Or Hawaii in general,for that matter.

Maxton is 'MBE' . Once a mainline jet lands there,it's not leaving. I really want to make it down there again,before it gets too got and hazy. It's actually MEB. It's just southwest of Fayetteville, for those unfamiliar. It's actually MXE, if we're talking IATA airport designators. MEB is Melbourne...Jump to post
Doesn't Maxton mean.....THE END ? Yes,the runway is too short to leave. The runway is 4200 feet long and 75 feet wide. It is a general aircraft airport owned by the city of Manila, Arkansa. Kiss that aircraft goodby. :old: Maxton is owned by the Town of Laurinburg & Maxton (NC). Runway 5/23 is ...Jump to post
So far, much of the response activity has been centered around the larger upstate airports. I've always been interested in what sort of terminal facilities are in the smaller airports such as Plattsburg, Ogdensburg, Elmira etc. If anyone has any photos of these airports it would be good to see. Tha...Jump to post
Speaking of AA Barbie jets...I'll be at ROC later today to fly back to DC. I'll try to get some pictures of the construction. They've installed some framework above the apron just outside the atrium window next to the west rotunda and A2. Southern Ontario really skews things at BUF. Canadians seem ...Jump to post

It looks like DL 9950 is the rescue flight. It appears that it is going DTW-ATL-LOS.

Best part were the rear air stairs on stretch '27 Yup. Just ask DB Cooper! By the way, I am sure that someone here can help me with a question I have been curious about.

I wish they would come to ROC. We need some new blood,here . I don’t think they would come there anytime soon. If they did, they would likely do Rochester-Orlando, and the ROC-ORL market already has Southwest and Allegiant. I don’t think there’d be room for a third airline to do that, unless they t...Jump to post
QF's -SP's were more reliable for the flight being non-stop. Their RR's RB211's were more fuel efficient and QF kept the best ones one the -SP.Jump to post
