Around the ramp at the home field, MZJ

As much as I love the old days, TWA's fate was sealed with with the infamous Karabu agreement. TWA had enough problems without that.

You also need a hub that puts money into your pocket, not just a connecting point. STL definitely wasn't that.

TWA sure had a lot of MD-80's! How old is that airport???

@phill1174
By looking at the ERJ in American Connection colors the pic looks around 2001ish like everyone else said. That airport itself started out in the 1890’s. The Maddog was definitely their workhorse. As I kid I remember being able to sit in my bedroom window and watch the fly over the house one after the other turning west after T/O. Now It’s mostly dead unless you catch one or SWA departure or arrivals banks.

Welp, this happened at MZJ. One of the Las Vegas Sands Corp.'s 2 747SPs was badly damaged during repair work…somehow. I will be pissed if this thing is written off(pretty damn sure it is), I never got a good photo of it at LAS. :(

I mean, HOW?!









What an idiotic event. How does it collide with so many objects at once?!

What in the world could have caused this much damage? Even the gear looks like it’s leaning sideways. It looks like they tried to taxi into the hanger at 30 knots.

That is what I was thinking. That would be a hell of a lot of momentum for the aircraft to gain in the hangar with the brake off!

Ok, verified via a flight tracker that it happened in LCH?

RIP...here is the last time I saw her, departing LAS in July. Never did get an up-close photo of the 747SPs, though I did see one takeoff once.

She was one of three 747SPs that would regularly come into here. Two of those three had beautiful interiors. Used to see when they were being worked on, how much interior prep was done to cover and protect from dust, grease, shoe marks, etc. Now, it’s going to be a write off; I’d be shocked if it wasn’t.

i forgot to add that the other two were one that belonged to Qatari emirs and had an extremely plush interior, and the other was the P&W engine testbed jet.
