Re: UPS 747-400 Emergency Landing

Am I the only one who knew this? Although last I heard, Aaron's brother was flying... 767s? I don't remember but I think he was moving to the 744.
Very glad that he's ok!!!

Re: Where do you plan on going after closing?

Like several others, I don't think I'm going anywhere else either, this is my first and last VA. It's been a blast guys! But it's time to move onto bigger and more real things. :winking:

Up close and personal with Air Force One!

This past Thursday, President Obama paid a visit to my humble abode, wanting to give a speech on healthcare at the place where it started, The University of Iowa. While I didn't much care to hear the speech, my Aunt wanted to go see Air Force One so I happily tagged along. We got to see the Motorcad...

Re: Hawaiian A330-243

The A318/A319 are terrible replacements for the 717/M80/DC9 on short routes because of the large increase in empty weight to carry the same amount of passengers, that makes them very expensive on short routes.
