Some menu selections include a generic aircraft model, as well as more specific variants of that airliner.
These variants are denoted by a - before the aircraft name.

Note: A rare glimpse of the inside of P&W Canada's Flying Engine Test Bed, C-FETB. Unfortunately C-FETB is the last Boeing 720 still flying. The other two 720s N720H and N720PW were broken up in late 2008. C-FETB flew in from CYHU for...
Note: The last Boeing 720 flying.
C-FETB is seen here during engine start and preparing to fly back to CYHU after it flew in for maintenance.
Take note of P&WC's N720PW in the background soon to be broken up.
Note: N610DL flew into SFB to celebrate the Delta Connection Acadamy's opening of their new flightschool facilities. A tour of the Pink Delta was also available to DCA's students and employees. As shown in this photo N610DL gave us a...

Note: World Airways with its new look visits JFK. I do find the new scheme attractive. I'm also glad to see WOA added some color to their fleet again.
I sprained my angle trying to get a shot of this bird. No pain no gain I guess.
