I really dig those avros. I traveled in it once out of Flint, MI. Does anybody fly them anymore?

The 747-SP was an awesome aircraft. Among my favorite of the '47s (apart from the 400 series). Pan Am went on for a long time.

I miss the DC-8. Such a beautiful aircraft. When I was a kid (around 1988 or so), I sat about five seats behind Michael Douglas on a DC-8.

I miss the old-school "Guppy". They always took me where I wanted to go (most of the time to visit family in Houston). When I was young and when airlines still gave a crap about customer service, we had to take a Piedmont 737-200 on an ID-90. One of the Piedmont ticket agents gave me one of those flat, two-piece plastic model-things in the shape and livery of a 737. I never forgot that.

I loved the DC-10.

That TWA livery would still look modern in '08. Unlike DAL, which has had about 3 changes in the last 10 years (finally looks good now), NW, which still is ugly, USAir and United.
