Note: The newest Aer Lingus cabin product, complete with PTVs and the 'standard' Recaro seat - which had a very generous recline, I feel. It's too bad we went retro with the old cabin on the return trip. If you look closely, you can see my...
Note: Seen here after operating Shuttle America 7625 from IND. Thanks to a 45 minute hold over Kokomo, Indiana, I had all of 10 minutes - instead of 55 - to get from Concourse C to B for my connection to LGA. Actually, it was more like 10...
Note: The cavernous main cargo deck of the Evergreen Supertanker sits empty, but not for long. Come April, normal pallets of freight will be swapped out for tanks with 24,000 gallons of fire retardant - more than seven times the capacity of the...
Note: Flight deck of the Evergreen Supertanker. This ship is currently operating regular cargo flights until April, when it will be re-retrofitted with water tanks in the main cargo hold and jettison nozzles just aft of the main landing gear.
Note: A perfect illustration of how time flies. Just 15 years ago, this very scene would have been dominated by a sea of PanAm Clippers, but now Delta has a tight grip on the reigns over Terminal 3. And within three days of this photo, Song...
Note: Seen at the A gates after ferrying me down from LGA as Air Shuttle 7298. The 6:00am departure was tedious, but the flight was a swift 45 minutes and our early arrival gave me plenty of time to catch my connection to IND.
Note: It's great to see some heavy metal from Delta back at JFK. Here, Delta 17 makes the morning trip back to Atlanta after returning from Mumbai earlier in the morning. I must admit, though, that it was a little disappointing to see this...
Note: "Alayna" is treated to a traditional water canon salute as Purdue University receives yet another aircraft laboratory from a close corporate partner; FedEx's generous donation, valued at $650,000, is seen here during the official...
