Re: Paris - Boeing Porn

I don't like the somewhat relentless pull ups! Also, can you fly either aircraft with the same type rating? (Reference to the nice effort that was made so that 757 and 767 had the same type rating...that is ever so slightly implied, especially if you use an over active imagination , by the paint sch...

No.

1. Nicely worded statements from the PR department where they try to communicate that the airline actually cares.

AND

Re: Grisly Beheaded UAL 757 Now Children’s Museum Trophy

I wish there were more in-tact airplanes on display where you could sit in the cockpit. Tons upon tons of whole aircraft are on display, but it's kind of rare to get in the cockpit. The 727 at Chicago is very cool, but conversely, it's somewhat cut up and don't think you actually work controls. They...

Beautiful skies, yard work and the sounds of a B-29? out giving rides.

I should probably have gotten a ride- but it would hurt much just to watch.

Hoping for visual contact sometime. Will try to catch a jetphoto, but a dual EALCAS failure is probably more likely.

I too like WN. However, I fly them somewhat less than a few years ago as fares are somewhat more expensive (cue the ole 'we ask for what we get' comments).
